Hello Akif,
This is a great shot from your car!
You captured this female Montague's Harrier with fine sharpness in this frontal POV, the light being a little against you but well managed. Looks great against the lighter OOF BG.
Thanks for sharing this fine image,
Ivan

Impeccable image of this Montagu's Harrier, Akif!
This is so sharp and detailed!
The low-down POV is superb and I love the composition.
Brilliant DOF too.
Great colours.
How do you get so close to all these raptors?

Stunning work!

Akif bey harika olmuş deliceleri çekmenin zorluğunu biliyorum çok beğendim ellerinize sağlık.

Hi Akif,

Again a beautiful image of a beautiful bird of prey I've never seen before.
Excellent composition and great low shooting/viewing angle.
Most wonderful color tones, deatails in the feathers and perfect DOF.
Great how the darker colors of the bird do stand out against the lighter color tones of fore and background.
Excellent work. TFS!!!

Best regards, Harry

Fantastic shot, you managed a superb and precise dof, I'm amazed! The colours shine throughout the frame, the colours are natural and how I wish I could meet such a beautiful bird. Thank you Akif,
