Hello Akif,
Wow, what a superb action shot! Little Weasels are really quick and tend to hide and are not easily captured. You show details and colour very well here and I like the natural surrounding. Well done!
TFS and regards, Ulla

Perfect capture Akif Bey. Bu ne harika bir poz böyle. nadiren görülüyor nispeten az kaydı var bu türün ama sen hem gördmüş hem de harika bir zamanlamayla yakalamışsın. netlik detaylar, açı arka plan hepsi çok çok güzel. eline sağlık.
Yavruvatan Kıbrıstan selamlar.

Hi Akif
Great action shot
well composed and good shapness and speed
The background is a little noisy, but not too bad.

Hi Akif,

What fantastic timing to get this shot! I've never seen a Weasel so really appreciate this post. The details are excellent - love the eye and the little ear. Nice natural colors to complete this amazing capture.


Hi Akif,
Very nice shot,
Best regards,

Hi Akif,
I wondered if you were expecting to see this Weasel or if it was one of those chance shots. Whichever you caught it just right.
Well done,
