[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Nowadays I could not have enough time for uploading to TN. Today, I post Turkish hamster from Erzurum Province. The photograph was taken in nature during scientific works, when we released it.
Mesocricetus brandti Nehring, 1898 is one of three hamster species of the subfamily Cricetinae in Turkiye. This is known as "Turkish Hamster". Turkish vernacular name is "Avurtlak" which it was derivated from cheek pocket (avurt in Turkish). Hamsters carry their food from out side to holes, depositing into these pockets.
Other two hamsters in Turkiye,
** Mesocricetus auratus (Waterhouse, 1839) and
** Cricetulus migratorius (Pallas, 1773) which I uploaded previously.
Both species of the genus Mesocricetus Nehring, 1898 are used as labratory animals all over the world and especially children like them as playful pets.

This shot for my good friend Ho Tony (gracious) from New Zealand, with my best wishes.

Hocam süper valla:) Hem tür olarak hemde kalite olarak çok akılda kalıcı bir fotoğraf olmuş. Ellerine sağlık

Beautiful capture of this little Hamster Ahmet.
Its amazing to see one in its wild environment.
I kept them as pets in England, but they are not allowed into New Zealand at all.
Good work.

Hi AHmet

What a lovely shot of this little hamster. The DOF and POV are both great. Normally, I suppose, this would be a very difficult shot to take.

Hi Ahmet,
great shot of this little Hamster!
It's great to see a wild one!
Great low-down POV and a good DOF.
A better composition would have been to position the Hamster on the right side of the frame but this composition still works well.
Well done,
Joe

Ahmet tebrikler , hem fotoğraf çok güzel , hemde verdiğin bilgiler çok yararlı , eline sağlık .

It's so good the exposure and details got on the hamster.

Hello Ahmet,

I can understand that children like them, what a cute creature! I prefer to see them in the wild than in a laboratory... This is an excellent capture with superb details, wonderful composition and lightning. I wish I have one at home, do you think he could play with my cats, lol? :))) Thanks,
Claudine
