[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Streptopelia turtur (Linnaeus, 1758) - Üveyik [TR], Turtle Dove [EN]
is a member of the family Columbidae of the order Columbiformes, which includes the doves and pigeons.
It is similar to S. decaocto - Kumru [TR], Collared Dove [EN]. But later is a bit larger and common in settlements.
It ranges in western Palearctic Region and it is a migratory species. In winter, it migrates to southern Africa. It mainly prefers open areas.
Unfortunately, it is often hunted.

It was very hot and sunny. I took it from car window without tripod. This bird is younger without collar marks in adults.
I hope it will be acceptable. Thanks for your visit.

Hi Ahmet, great colour and detail on this turtle dove. I like the background he has selected for this pose. The dead branches and the green brown background work very well with the bird in this presentation.

Thanks, John

Merhaba Ahmet Bey,
Kompozisyon, fon ve renkler cok guzel. Elinize saglik

Hello Ahmet

Those tones of colors and environment are very nice. It is unusual to see them in braches like this. Most of the time, they are on wires :) Details, composition and POV are very good too. Thanks,

Dr, Ekipmanı düzeltince bir birinden güzel fotoların ekrana düşmeye başladı. Netlik gayet iyi, arka fon da çok uygun olmuş. Selamlar. Mustafa

Una gran composición. Ese fondo junto con las reamas crean un contraste bueno. Saludos Ahmet.

İsmini hep duyduğumuz hatta çocukken gördüğümüz bu sevimli canlıyı çok güzel ve ustaca resimlemişsiniz.
Elinize sağlık.
