[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
I gave short information about small pond in Bucakçayir of Nigde by my last post. This shot is belongs to Porzana porzana Linnaeus, 1766 – Benekli Suyelvesi [TR], Spotted Crake [EN], first record for Niğde Province. This bird is one of 13 species of the genus Porzana and one of three in Turkiye.
Other two Turkish species of the genus, from the family Rallidae, are
** Porzana parva – Bataklık Suyelvesi [TR], Little Crake [EN]
** Porzana pusilla – Küçük Suyelvesi [TR], Baillon's Crake [EN].

When I took some Calidris minuta and Gallinago gallinago, it appeared suddenly from sedges to water surface. Probably it couldn't see me in this time, since I lied under my wife's old carpet for a camouflage on ground. It was very shy and it ate something in short period and escape to other side. Several minutes later, it came bacek and I took this photograph.
My close friend, Mustafa Sözen, selected this shot among several ones and arranged gently it for TN. I wish to thanks Mustafa (spalaxtr).

Dr,
Çok güzel bir tür. Sudaki yansıma yarı bir güzellik vermiş fotoğrafa. Kuş fotoğrafında hep gözde bir ışıltı aranır. Senini fotoğrafta ışıltı daha çok yansımadaki kuşun gözünde görünüyor, çok ilginç. Doğal renkler ve kompozisyon da oldukça güzel. Tebrikler. Mustafa

Hello Ahmet,
Congratulations on getting the first capture of this bird in the Nigde province - that must feel great! Wonderful capture of this beautiful Spotted Crake, usually a very shy bird. Great sharpness and a beautiful reflection in the water too. Very well composed!
