Hocam, such a great close up (i'd say a little bir over exposed). I noticed that the dorsum is less contrasted with head and that may mean that they are different subspecies (from Turkish ones)...
The size and bad character emphasized by dead branches. Congrats.
I doubt they (gyr) were bred and used in falconry in Ottomans, but there is a reference of white falcon in texts. Must admit that is looks less stocky, darker, and more patterned on face than in this photo than my ideal gyr, so i suspect that it can be a peregrinus. But i am not a professional, so....
"Isnt she adorable" was the only word came out when saw first. That is it looks so female like. A marvellous shot with the dorsal pattern...
I felt lucky to see those in almost veerywhere. A lot of direct light yuo got this time. TFS
Saimiri vanzolinii... A species i dont recognize. A good documntary depicting behavior of the species

Futuristic cops! I agree, for the shiny abdomen segments and those eyes...Very very beautiful capture. TFS

I sthis the original cadrage? To me it is more natural in 90 deg CCW position. Needs little bit of contrast. TFS
