I gave some information and another shot of the species four posts ago. It is another individuals which was taken in second day after first record for Akkaya Dam Lakelet. It is very camouflage species. Observation is diffucult since similar coloured stones or dried plants.
Thank you very much to all TN family for interesting, critique writing, comments, suggestions and recommendations for my recent 99 photographs.
I added photos from five countries (Turkiye, Syria, Jordan, Irak, Iran) to TN. 86 of 100 from 21 Turkish provinces, seven from five Syrian and three from three Jordanian muhafazas (provinces) and two from one Irak province and two Iranian ustans (states).
The photos belong to birds (31), mammals (19), butterflies (14), reptiles (7), landscape (7), dragonflies (6), scorpions (4), amphibians (3), plants (3), beetles (2), fish (1), spider (1), milliped (1), mantid (1).
Of these, Cricetulus migratorius has been the most popular (40), Dryomys laniger (endemic) is second (38), and Plecotus teneriffae (The Long-eared bat) is third (36).

Thanks again. Best regards to all of you. Have a nice Sunday.

This shot is superb and an excellent choice to mark this occasion. Everything is right about this in-flight shot of a Stone-curlew. Caught at a good moment, sharp, good lighting, fine POV and fine composition.
Well done and look forward to many more shots from you.

Congratulations on your 100th post, Ahmet.
It takes a lot of dedication to make all these contributions. : }
They were particularly meaningful because they come from a part of the world for which we do not have a lot of images here on TN.
An excellent in-flight shot of this unusual stone-curlew (rare on TN anyway).
Fantastic details and light and a great pose.
TFS. : )

Congrats on your 100th post and what a nice one it is! This is a very good inflight shot of an unusual specie. This bright blue sky makes a perfect BG. Well done and TFS,

hocam merhabalar,
hareketli fotograflari cekmek cok zordur, özelliklede bu havada ucan bir kus ise daha bir zordur. ben kusun türünden daha ziyade fotografla ilgilenmek istiyorum, meslegim geregi hareketli fotograflari cok severim ve istedigin enstantaneyi yakalamak ise oldukca zordur. Siz havada ucan hareketli bu kusu yakalamakla gercekten harika bir kare yakalamisiniz tek kelimeyle harika tebrik ediyorum. bu arada 100. fotografinizin daha nice 100. fotograflara....
