After break of one day, I will upload from my Sivas seri. Same individual of

On September 9th, 2007, our trip started from Central Anatolia and we drove to Sivas for the first day. Mustafa's and my cameras were ready always. During this trip, Mustafa, his two assistants and me visited Sivas, Erzincan, Gümüşhane, Erzurum Provinces located in Central and Northeastern Anatolia. After Erzurum, we returned using almost same route.
Our purpose was mammalogical searching. We collected many data about mammals, but also we took many photographs, mainly birds up to September 16th, 2007.
Some of them have been appeared on TN by Mustafa and me. Today, I continue to post from my Sivas seri.

Hi Ahmet, good sharp detail picked up on this Glossy Ibis, with great colour. I found the pose amusing. It's not often you see one scratching like this. We are supposed to have the Glossy Ibis in Australia but I haven't seen one yet. I will definitely keep a look out for them.

Thanks, John

Hi Ahmet

Great pose - well seen and captured (too often I am too late with this type of pose). Great colour too. I particularly like the drops of water.

Merhaba Ahmet,
Very nice shot of a Glossy Ibis having a scratch while standing in the water. The fine lighting makes it contrast well with the water BG in this fine composition.
Thanks for sharing this one my friend,
