[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
The majestic, 5033 meters high, mount Kazbegi in Greater Caucasian Mountains. These very high mountains in Caucasian region makes a species very speacial. The endemic Caucasian Snowcock. They can only be seen in these mountains between 2000 to 4500 meters in the world.

It was an amazing mountain, charming but also terrible. It scared me a lot. An avalanche blast just happened in front of us. On the way back, a freezing rain has started and even our underwears were got wet :)

Birds are quiet shy and it is not easy to find and get close to birds.

I like the depth of field here, Emin. The blurry mountain behind makes a fine background. The bird's head is slightly out of focus, but what a nice capture!

Congratulation for this shot. These birds must be very difficult to get on picture. Never saw this one on TN.

bazen adamı güldürüyorlar. 300 m'den nadir bir kuşu çek; sonra başı netliğin dışında desinler:)
harikulade olmuş, Emin. tebrikler. selamlar.
