[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Tringa totanus (TUR: Kızılbacak, ENG: Common Redshank): Photo was taken in Halik Lake in central Anatolia.

Identification: Redshanks are medium-sized waders with longer bills than say, Ruff or Knot and with relatively dull brown plumage but bright red legs. In flight they are the only British wader with a broad white bar across the trailing edge of the wing. The extensive white rump and upper tail is also most striking.

Habitat: Breeds on damp fields, meadows and moorland. Winters on estuaries and marshes.

Distribution: A common bird breeding over much of Britain, except south-west England and parts of Wales. Can be found in a wide range of habitats from saltmarsh to grassy fields. Extremely common and widespread around the coast on passage and in winter.

A widespread breeding bird on the meadows, marshes and moorlands on north and central Europe and one of the commonest birds of most estuarine areas.

The total European breeding population is between 300 000-390 000 pairs.

Hello Mustafa,
Beautiful sharp photo with a great reflection and colours. I can almost hold it up-side-down. Good composition, DOF and low POV.
TFS, Peter

Hi Mustafa,
the sharpness and details in the plumage are very good.
The DOF is also very good, the bird is well seen against the BG.
Well composed with fine POV. The reflections add alot to the picture.
Well done.

bunlar bana Hafikte poz vermeyenlerden. sen şanslıydın böyle güzel bir pozu alabildin. ikimizin de son resimlerini başlığına "ayna" yazsak olurdu. yansıması bile ilk başlardaki çekimlerimiz kadar net. eline sağlık. selamlar.
