Third shot of Aladağlar trip seri is flying Hirundo rustica. We found a small natural lake in Sulucaova. I cant meet any record from present literature about its fauna. We (with Prof.Dr. Nuri Yiğit) listed many bird species and some mammals (Microtus spp., Apodemus flavicollis, Myotis myotis and some others) as like several butterfly and dragonfly.

Hello Ahmet,
A well composed image, simple but attractive!
The bird is nicely placed in the frame, dynamic composition...
Comprehensive note!

Hi Ahmet
the new lens seems to do miracles, not very very sharp but great flight shot

Hi Ahmet,
A beautiful bird. Very nice composition and colors. But some details of the subject is missing. What time of day it was? morning ore evening? But a nice shot.
Thanks a lot or sharing.

Ahmet. Your shot is nice but somehow the eye contact of the subject is missing. Understandable due to height. TFS Ganesh
