[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Sylvia rueppelli - Karaboğazlı Ötleğen [TR], Rüppel's Warbler [EN] can be easily identified by its black throat "karaboğazlı" and white moustache. The species is breeding migratory in Ege [Aegean] and Akdeniz [Mediterranean] regions of Turkiye. It also breeds only souhern Greece and Crete Island. It migrates into the Middle East and East Africa by the way Syria, Israel and Arabistan. It is an insect eater.

I captured this male between Tuzla Lake and Mediterranean coast early morning. I have many great shots, but I prefer this one since its interesting action. I hope you will like it.

Hello Ahmet,
What a pose! worthy of a great dancer! good job, great shot a 1/2000s!

Hi Ahmet
Birds at the moment of take off are usually ugly. This is sure not the case of that one. Yes, a very elegant pose.
Furthermore Rüppel's Warbler are rare on TN.
Great action shot.

Hello Ahmet,
a very lovely and excellent capture. Great details, colours and composition.
Best regards Siggi

My Brother Ahmet,
This action shot is one of your best.
I love the sharp details and the catchlight of the eye, while the wings show motion blur!

Elinden ne uçan ne de kaçan kurtuluyor dostum. Son kurbanın da bu karaboğazlı olmuş anlaşılan:) Harika aksiyonu enfes kaydetmişsin.
Bol selam.


Merhaba Ahmet, lovely bird in nice pose on beautiful blue sky, wonderful details, good natural colors and excellent sharpness, very well done my friend, ciao Silvio

Hallo Ahmet
The eye of the Rüppel's Warbler has definite magnetism to it and the black "cap" of feathers on its head surely is very eye catching. Very good action shot indeed.
Apologies for shorter than usual critique. Best regards.

Merhaba Ahmet.
Wonderful capture of this very pretty bird in moment of start a flight.
Nice picture.Well done.
Friendly greetings.Alin.

Ahmet hocam selamlar,
Güzel bir ötleğen fotoğrafı olmuş,
yan gözle sizi kesiyor gibi her an
kalkmaya hazır... Elinize sağlık...

Hello Ahmet,
What a catch..so cute and so vivid the expression of the little Warbler.
Very natural and pleasing picture. I agree with you, I prefer this kind of shots to a stereotype close-up!
Thanks and kind regards

Sayın hocam,
Bu kareyi önceden görmüştüm ama beğenimi dile getirmemiştim. Ev arkadaşımla ilk gördüğümüzde bale yapan bayanlara benzettik:) Zarif bir balerin edası sezdik:) Çok ama çok hoşumuza gitti.
Elinize, emeğinize sağlık
Selam ve saygılarımızla...

demek buralarda saklıyorsun bunları :)
eline sağlık hocam, çok güzel, çok beğendim,

Another MAGNIFICIENT capture.
Even the "eye" .... such unique clarity.
Mario from Canada.
Got a new addition... Canon EOS 7D.
P.S. Sorry for being so late to return to TN; my MOST BELOVED Mother-in-law passed away on 9th. April 2010. Am still mourning her loss. LOVED HER. She was a great lady; suffered much in silence!!!
