[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Erithacus rubecula (Linnaeus, 1758) - Kızılgerdan, Narbülbülü, Mustafacık, Göğsükızıl, Göğsükınalı [TR], European Robin, Robin [EN] is one of the most popular bird species on TN. I also posted previously this species from famous ancient Acropolis Ruins in Athens (Greece) (see the link).
It is also fifth of my İzmir seri. I took it, on hand, in garden of hotel in Balçova (İzmir). Then
-RAW to JPEG
-a bit (c. 10%) cropped
-auto contrast
-framed and logo.

E. rubecula is a common passerine bird in Europe, Turkiye, the Caucasus and North Africa. In Western and Northern Turkiye, it is a resident species, whereas it is seen in Akdeniz (Turkish Mediterranean) region during winter season.

I think its dedication is more favourable for a girl and so I send this lovely and colored bird for my daughter, Gökçe who is eight months old.

fabulous robin, great composition and POV...the feather details on the bird are first class...TFs

Dr çok iyi bir ışıkla nefis çekmişsin. Kuşun duruşu, bakışı, gözdeki ışıltı ve arka plan çok güzel. Kuşun tünediği dal da çok estetik. Eline sağlık.

A perfectly focused and nicely lighted "Narbülbülü" Ahmet. Color and plumage details are very good, so is your viewpoint. A nicely contrasting BG completes your "textbook" portrait, your daughter will cherish this dedication in the future. TFS.

Hi Amhet,
Those little seem to be born to pose for photographers :) What a cute pose you captured with excellent composition, natural colors and good details. I particularly like this catch-light in its eye. Who knows, maybe someday, we'll have them in my country as well :) Thanks,
Claudine

A beautiful little Robin - so different than the American Robin. I would love to see one some day. The pose is wonderful and the colors are so pretty and natural. Excellent details of the face, wing, and plummage.

Hi Ahmet.
It is really great bird picture. I amazed with beautifulness of the scene. Posture of the legs, turning of the head, pleasantness of the nicely blurred BG and impressive of the dry broken branch are amazing. Technically shot is executed perfectly too. Bravo. Well done and all my compliments.
Alexei.

Hello Ahmet,
Looking through your beautiful gallery, I have to admire your skills for bird photography. All are excellently captured in flawless quality.

This one is of no exception. The details is well written all over this picture. The perch are timely and you have eliminated all the busyness extremely well. Good contrast against the green blurry background. I like it so much and very well done.
Best regards,
Jusni

Hi Ahmet

Great shot - lovely pose and good detail. These birds are very popular in the UK as they are not afraid of people - if you are in the garden they will come to see what you are doing - people think they are being friendly - of course, they are only looking for insects you might disturb.

Merhaba Ahmet,
This is a very good portrait of the robin.
I like the pose got and composition proposed for this image.
Got great details on its plumage, and that blurred background worked great!
Congratulations and thanks for share it.

Hallo Ahmet
Although this is not your latest posting, I think this is a brilliant photo full of colour and character. When I saw this one I immediately thought about Pinnochio with his thin match-stick legs. It is such a cute and elegant little bird. I love the highlight in the eye and glint adds a big plus to a photo. I enjoyed looking at it. A smiley well earned. Thanks for sharing.
