Hello my friends,
Nowadays, I have less time to TN since our academic, lecturing facilities in university. Many thanks for your visiting my posts and your critiques.
Afternoon of today, I visited Bucakçayır in suburban area of Niğde City, when I went to university. It was sunny and nice. I observed 13 bird species there. One of them was Buteo rufinus (Cretzschmar, 1829) - Kızılşahin [TR], Long-legged Buzzard [EN], which is one of three species of the genus Buteo Lacepede, 1799 in Turkiye. Others are
*** Buteo buteo (Linnaeus, 1758) - Şahin [TR], Common Buzzard [EN],
*** Buteo lagopus (Pontoppidan, 1763) - Paçalı Şahin [TR], Rough-legged Buzzard [EN].

There are several color phases of B. rufinus in the country. Some of them is darker, some others are lighter. I posted another shot of this species from Gümüşhane Prov. in 2007 (photo)

I'd like to celebrate one of my close friend, Dr. Fatih İzler (izler) who is one of most active TN members. Today is his birthday and wedding anniversary. Happy birtday Fatih and happy long life Fatih and Zekiye, together. Congratulations my friend.

Hello Ahmet

A lovely image of this buzzard.
Excellent POV and you have composed it and filled the frame well.
Very good sharpness and detail.The plumage markings are well seen.
The blue sky makes a lovely back drop.
Nicely done,I hope you find some free time to enjoy behind the camera soon.

I am not sure how many if any times I have been to your gallery....but even if I have not critiqued, it was not due to any problems with your photos...They alone are perfect, as this example..It is another reason...Midnight Express..a movie in the US..I don't know how many here on TN have shown it...but it scared me very much....I think I shall never underestimate the value of my own country until I see such things...but then came a couple of great photographers with superior knowledge..and now I am blessed by you! I am honored for your words and the ability to tell you how much I enjoy your images, this one as well.....life in po9litics is complex...but life in nature pays no attention..

Nice panning work Ahmet... I like all the sharp details in your shot. It's a nice frame filling shot. I like the angled position of the bird.

Hi Ahmet,

A fantastic in-flight shot of this Buzzard in a wonderful position. We have a great view of the entire bird. The face is so clear that we can see his expression. The intricate markings of the undersides of the wings are marvelous. I love the wingtips. Beautiful colors, details, and diagonal composition.

Wonderful work on an opportunity well taken and a fine tribute to our TN friend Fatih.

Wow, Ahmet, this is great. Taken with your Canon 600 mm cannon.
Fantastic sharpness and details in the feathers. Beautiful natural colours against a pleasant blue sky. Excellent POV and composition.
Regards,

Hi, dear friend.
I congratulate you on so amazing in-flight picture. I am amazed a lot. Simply great composition, POV and wingspread of the bird. Sharpness, lights, colours and shadows are stunning. However, I have allowed me to correct lights and shadows a little bit at WS.
Yours Alexei.

Sayın Hocam,
Sizin bu yaptığınıza bilmem ki ne demeli.Buna resmen satış derler. Bu 600 olayı, dostluğumuza tam bir ihanet gibi geldi bana.
Artık biz 400 lükleri acı günler bekliyor.
Neyse şaka bir yana yeni ekipmanın hayırlı olsun dostum. Güzel karelerinizi şimdiden sabırsızlıkla bekliyorum.
Fatihe çok enfes bir hediye olmuş. O gün akşama kadar kuş peşindeydik ancak bağlıantı sorunum nedeniyle akşam online değildim. Neyse ki sorunu şimdilik hallettik.
Yeni karelerde görüşmek dileği ile hoşçakal.

Fotografik açıdan kusursuz, nefis bir uçar çekimi olmuş bu Ahmet, candan kutluyorum dostum. Fatih dostumuz için de böyle anlamlı bir günde bundan iyi bir ithaf olamazdı diye düşünüyorum.
