This is a jewel, superb shot Alptekin, what a beautiful moment you captured. I love the wings spreaded giving noblety to this amazing bird. The composition is awesome with the branch crossing almost the entire frame and the beautiful colourful and blurred background. We even see droplets of water falling from the drying bird. This is a jewel and I love it, thank you,
