Hello Akif,
The 'long legs' are very visible. Perfect airport to land, I think.
Well done

Wow, this is a wonderful picture ! You have captured the bird at the perfect moment, and the picture is excellent quality - nice sharp details, warm colors, beautiful composition and POV, excellent pose of the bird.

Hello Akif, what a great shot of this landing raptor! Great pose, very nice composition and great technique all over, thanks!


A perfect landing shot with a typical "flaps down" wing posture captured in frozen motion from an ideal POV Akif Bey, a little information on this dramatic take would be appreciated...
