[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
A pair of Ruddy Shelducks from Bafa Lake. The one with the black ring on the neck is a male. Ruddy Shelducks are monogamous.

The ones I have seen and watched in Bafa Lake for about a year always hang around in couples, not groups. During spring they appear in groups of 3 - the third member being the young. When they are taking off usually the female flies first and the male follows him.

They are strong fliers, but they need large open space to take off after running over water with rapid wing beats. During the flight they have rapid wing beats,and are similar to bumblebees, producing a whirring sound.

Hello Selen,
This beautiful composition has a beautiful title.Congratulations!
Fantastic colors, sharpness and light.The spread of the wings brings out rich colurs and the one flying in the distance pushes back the focus to the one at behind.
Super Shot!

Nice composition.
I Like it!

Hi Selen,

Interesting in flight shot. Great colors and sharpness. I like the frame you made.


Hi Selen,
A very excellent in flight shot on this pair of Ruddy Shelducks. The action is perfectly frozen with the high shutter speed. Nice sharp detail allows use to see the beautiful colors and patterns of the plumage. Well done!

Arkadaki odaklandıgın Angıtın sol kanadının suda bıraaktıgı iz hoşuma gitti güzel bir kompozisyon ellerine Saglık Selen.
