    Amazing... I want one.
    Is that ugly green structure maybe because of restoration work that seems to be happening?

    Totally possible. Seems to be a popular tourist destination, so maybe used as a workshop/storage space.

    Oh yeah...and I want one too.

    EDIT: Just found the name from here https://sipacontest.com/gallery/2018/category.php?cat=6

    Photographer: Jacopo Rigotti (IT)

    Location: Trentino Alto Adige (Italy)

    Description: Looking, as usual, for the nests of the most beautiful bird species in Trentino, I unexpectedly saw this hoopoe and I immediately grasped the opportunity to photograph it.

    We were on the Skywalk last year, no shoes, cameras, keys, bags anything that can possibly be dropped and crack the glass. All that money and you can't even take a camera so no proof, sorry
