Lanius nubicus - Maskeli Örümcekkuşu [TR], Masked Shrike [EN], LANIIDAE (PASSERIFORMES) ailesinden güzel renkli bir ötücü türüdür. Ülkemizde, Trakya, Ege, Akdeniz bölgeleri başta olmak üzere; daha çok batı ve güney kesimlerde bahardan sonbahara kadar görülür; diğer bir ifade ile üreme göçmenidir. Diğer Örümcekkuşları (Lanius) gibi usta avcılardır. Böcek, örümcek gibi avların yanısıra zaman zaman kertenkeler, hatta fareleri bile yakalayıp yerler. Avı yakaladıktan sonra akasya dikeni gibi sivri bir "kazığa" saplayarak ölmesini beklerler ve daha sonra yerler.
Üreme alanları daha çok İran, Türkiye ve Ortadoğu ülkeleriyle sınırlıdır. Balkanlar'da ve Avrupa'nın çeşitli yerlerinde arasıra görülebilirler. Kuzey Afrika'da kışı geçirirler.
Fotoğraf Çukurova Üniversitesi (Adana)'nin kuzeyinde Seyhan Baraj Gölü kıyısında çekilmiştir. Çekim, rüzgarlı havada arabadan yapılmıştır. Yol arkadaşım Volkan Pek (volkan)'e teşekkür ederim. Bu kareyi, uzun bir aradan sonra tekrar aramıza dönen Profesör Mehmet Atatür (matatur) hocama beğeneceğini umarak ithaf ediyorum.

Stunning shot Ahmet! The colors in this frame are simply out of this world. Fine celebration of detail and pleasant moderate contrast under magnificent soft light. The pose of the Masked shrike is filled with curiosity. Amazing background tobacco color! Bravo my friend, we have a winner here!

Hola Ahmed'im,
Şans eseri, aylar sonra katıldığım TN'de komşu olmuşuz. bu arada sen "offset" tekniğini kullanarak oluşturduğun nefis kompozisyonlara bir yenisini eklemişsin. Bununla da kalmayıp bu maskeli dilberin mükemmel çekimini bana ithaf etmişsin. Teşekkür eder aşırı duygulandığımı bilmeni isterim.
Sevgilerimle,
Mehmet

Hi Ahmet,what a nice little bird and what a nice position too,it turn the head just for you as i can see...eehe...very very good quality as usual and excellent perspective too.Thanks for share,have a nice day,LUCIANO.

as usual great composition and a great bird, greetigns Ori

A very professional job of shooting this colourful Shrike with your special equipment comprising a long lens that requires the use of a tripod, Dr Ahmet. The dorsal perspective shows the little bird in its most glorious aspect, especially with its head turned, as if intentionally, for this very special pose.
I also like the way you have left sizable space within the frame vacant to emphasize the sense of freedom a bird enjoys by virtue of being a bird.
Nature imagery at its best.
Thanks.
Ram

Well done Ahmet. You captured this beautiful little shrike perfectly. A well exposed image with good colors and splendid composition. The OOF background makes the little bird stand out well.
Superb Photography.

Greetings
Frans.

Günaydin Ahmet,
Superb capture of a male Lanius nubicus.
The rear POV was captured in a great pose with the head turned to give fine eye contact and show most of his features with excellent colours and sharpness against a clean BG.
I didn't succeed in photographing this species in Lesvos, though we saw it several times.
Tesekkürler dostum ve eline saglik,
Ivan

Hallo Ahmet
A great capture of this beautiful, classy bird. A very good close approach, showing clear and sharp details on the plumage, polka dot eye and the lovely beak. Great in sharpness and lighting, presented in a pleasant manner. The colours in the image are fabulous.A well deserved 10/10 in my opinion. Thanks for sharing. Kind regards
Anna

Hi Ahmet,

I have missed so many wonderful shots of yours but I was immediately attracted to this Masked Shrike - a bird I don't think I have seen before, The pose is marvelous and the eye contact is amazing. I love the deep rich colors and the facial expression. Wonderful composition and a beautifully blending background.

Jane

Fantastic photo Ahmet! The BG, the composition, the lighting, the colours and the sharpness are excellent.
Regards,
Christodoulos
