[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Platalea leucorodia - Kaşıkçı [TR], Spoonbill [EN] is 3rd post from my İzmir trip. This is one of three species of the Ibis family THRESKIORNITHIDAE of the order CICONIIFORMES, with;
......- Plegadis falcinellus - Çeltikçi [TR], Glossy Ibis [EN] (photo I, II),
......- Geronticus eremita - Kelaynak [TR], Northern Bald Ibis, Hermit Ibis, or Waldrapp [EN].

In early morning of the second day, Mustafa (spalaxtr) and me went on to İzmir Bird Paradisea in Gediz Delta, after capturing Gallinula chloropus - Sutavuğu [TR], Moorhen [EN]. In first step, we met two Spoonbills and some other wader birds. One of the Spoonbills escaped, when we stopped. Other fed on swallow water, with escort of an Egretta garzetta - Küçük Ak Balıkçıl [TR], Little Egret [EN] :) It was close to us for capturing good photographes. But it was dark cloudy, unfortunately (lighting was openned by PS).
This post was about full framed (a bit cropped on left)and I took it from our car window and with distance of 10 metres (or a bit more). Two other shots are presented as Workshop (photo 1, photo 2). They were taken from about 15-20 metres.

Well, today's post is dedicated to couple of Elif (elif) and Salih (skoksalan), who are active members of TN.

I hope you will like this and enclosed two shots. Thanks for visiting.

Hi Ahmet,

A marvelous close-up of this Spoonbill in spite of the cloudy weather. Beautiful whites and fine details of the face and feathers. The bill and legs are wonderful. You took full advantage of this great up close opportunity. Lovely setting and composition.

Hi Ahmet,
Wonderful shot of this great looking Spoonbill and the subdued light with perfect exposure brings in the details on its plumage so nicely. Very impressive sharpness and I like this natural setting. Excellent POV, DOF and composition.

Love the details and composition. You know, the bill always seems like a handicap to me, but then, they might think our small mouths and fingers must make eating difficult for us.

The white isn't hot, the details of the face are superb and always interesting. Love the composition and the closeup.

Hello Ahme,
Thes guys sure get around don't they?
They even visit us here in New Zealand ... perhaps not quite the same species,but very similar.
We have the Royal Spoonbill (Platalea regia).
A great shot of this one.
Cheers & TFS
Steve

God morgon Ahmet!
A fine full-frame capture of a juvenile Spoonbill taken from a great POV on the shore of the Gediz Delta. Amazing that you could get so close to get such wonderful details!
It must be a marvellous place to visit.
Thanks for sharing this fine image of a species that I have seen once in sweden through a telescope!

Hello Ahmet !
What a beautiful bird, I think he looks very elegant, very gracious, and I also like his strange beak. Excellent details on his face and plumage, nice natual colors, beautiful composition and POV, wonderful neutral BG allowing the bird to stand out very nicely. Very well done !

Sayın Hocam,
Bu güzel hediyeniz bizi ne kadar mutlu etti bilemezsiniz. Bütün gün yorulduktan sonra bir internete bakim diye girdim.Kaşıkçı fotoğrafınızı gördüm ve genelde ilk notlarınızı okurum ve sonunda bu güzel hediyenizi okuyunca, çokkkkkkkkkk mutlu oldum.öğenden bu yana düşünüyorum ama yazacak, teşekkür edecek duygularımı, mutluluğumu ifade edecek cümleler bulamadım:)
Yani böylesine harika bir kareyi bize hediye etmeniz tarifi zor duygular uyandırdı bizde.
Çok teşekkür ederim.
Saygılarımla..
Elif

Sayın Hocam,

Ahmet Wonderful shot and superb composition. The spoonbill looking so elegant and brilliant. Well done Ganesh

Hola Ahmet,
Sevimli "Kaşıkçı"'yı hem de üç kez pek güzel yakalamışsın dostum, beyaz nesneleri doğru pozlandırmanın zorluğu malum, ama resimlerinde bu konuda da hiçbir falso görülmüyor, kuşumuzun tipik özelliklerini çok iyi yansıtan kareler olmuş, eline sağlık dostum.

Hello Ahmet,
This is an incredible photo with great sharpness and colors..
Well done

everton

Qué delicia de foto Ahmet. Aún no he podido ver nunca al natural esta ave. Has controlado bien los blancos ( a mi me da mucho trabajo su
control ) y has hecho un buen encuadre. La pose del ave excelente y casi toda ella dentro de foco.
Un excelente trabajo.

Salam Ahmet,

This is one beautiful white bird with unique bill. You have framed the bird so close exposing all the fine details for us to see. Sharp focus and nice pleasing bg. Thanks for sharing and best regards.

Jusni

Very good image of this elegant bird, Ahmet.
The sea does well for a background.
White is a difficult colour to expose and you have done well in this respect.
Thanks and regards.
Ram

I missed so many great pictures of yours, TFS Ori
