Greater Hoopoe Lark

I came across these shots of Greater Hoopoe Lark from a trip to the Cape Verdes Island in November 2013, while searching for other shots not related to this trip.  A fantastic bird full of character that always sticks in my head from seeing them in other desert habitats of North Africa. This bird was giving chase to a Locust that nearly got away on more than one occasion, but failed and I watched the same bird catch at least three others after this poor devil was devoured. It's great to have these memories on digi shots that I can look back on with fondness and brings the trip back to my poor old fading memory.
