Hello Ahmet,
Fine capture of the Little Ringed Plover with good sharpness and set in a good composition in a typical environment.
Very nice shot!
TFS and best wishes, Ivan

Hi Ahmet,
This is very similar to our Banded Dotterel, Charadrius bicinctus which I have posted two or three times.
It almost looks as though the body is more focussed than the head so if you have a spot mode for your autofocus use that and try to aim for the eye.
Otherwise a very interesting environmental shot.
Cheers, Steve

Beautiful photo well composed and framed. I really like the exposu5re/light, and natural colors. The eye with encircled by the gold ring, is something to behold. I think this is excellent technical quality.

Çok hoş bir fotoğraf olmuş. Senin yüklediğin fotoğraflar içinde en çok bunu sevdim. Netlik çok iyi. Eline sağlık. Mustafa

Ahmet, Very nice shot and lovely lighting. The expression of the bird is very interesting. Ganesh

Hi Ahmet
great shot in lovely natural habitat. the picture looks a bit soft, this may be due to pretty closed aperture (f/10) or, if handheld to blur due to camera movement. I would have tried with aperture of 5.6 or 6.4 and faster speed.
