[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
I upload again my last shot, same with yesterday, but with Akif Aykurt (raptorman)'s workshop. I wish to thanks raptorman for his contribution. I hope you will be pleasure visiting it.

Himantopus himantopus L., 1758 of the family Recurvirostridae of the order Charadriiformes is named as "Uzunbacak [TR]" or "Black-winged stilt [EN]". It is easily distinguisable with its long and reddish legs. Its lenght is 35-40cm and its wingspan is 70-85cm.
Wings are black and most of other parts white. The male of this species is different with blackish on top of head from female with white head.
It is relatively common in many wetland all over the Turkiye. It lives in sea shores too.
This bird on the photograph was a male and several individuals breed in this small pond. It was taken near sunset.

Great angle for this shore bird with the perfect name. This photo is a good illustration of its most distinguishable features, long pointed beak, long legs, and black wings. Exposure is good especially considering the birght light conditions.

Ahmet merhaba , teşekkür ederim , eline sağlık güzel bir fotoğraf , suyun yapısı ve renkleride çok ilginç.

Ahmet, Very nice workshop and this is much better. Ganesh

très belle échasse blanche. Les photos des oiseaux noirs et blancs sont souvant difficile à cause des contrastes et de la sur exposition.
