After a long silence, Hello to my all friends.
A speedy life among academic and administrative facilities, I had a break with my Icelandic trip between June 13 to 23, 2013.
We had many great times in there with more than 70 birds and five mammals. First of all is the most charactaristic Iceland bird:
Fratercula arctica - Denizpapağanı [TR], Atlantic Puffin [EN] (CHARADRIIFORMES: ALCIDAE). Turkish name means "Parrot of Sea", with its huge and colorful beak. Unfortunately I cant capture it with fishes on beak, since they were on nest, not feeding period for young.
I hope you will like the post.
All the best.

Hello Ahmet, Welcome back!
Hope all went well for you in Iceland. Maybe someday I will find out for myself what this cold Nordic island country is like.
Your photo is simple stunning to view. The detail is exceptional and the colors are awesome. It has such sad looking eyes, but I am sure it is just part of it's unique features that give it that appearance.

Dr. Ahmet, very happy to know you were in Iceland recently.
What a fantastic portrait of a Puffin you captured there!
Beautiful image with razor sharp focus and wonderful variety of colours on the bird's face.
Welcome back and keep posting, Doc!

Hi Ahmet,
What a great portrait of this bird.
Beautiful color and superb sharpness.
Nice point of view.
Thanks for sharing.


GREAT portrait Ahmet! The composition and the colours are excellent! The sharpness is impressive!

Hallo Ahmet
It surely is great to see a posting from you again and such a colourful one too adds to my delight.

I remember when I started as member of Trek Nature how fascinated I was when I saw these birds for the 1st time. I was amazed by all the prominent and vibrant coloured features and here you share a stunning portrait of an Atlantic Puffin which seemed to have dissapeared of the gallery for such a long time.

This is a brilliant close-up with fantastic detail showing up in the perfect lighting. And the look in the eye, is just so beautiful. I think they are very photogenic and your image proofs just that.

Thanks for sharing. Best regards.

Hello Ahmet,
How nice to see your new posting after such a long time!
First because it's a fantastic portrait in great sharpness, details, splendid colours and a fine composition.
Secondly because I am going to Iceland in two weeks. I hope I can take a shot like this.

Hello Ahmet,
Nice to see a picture from you again..a very nice one, indeed. Lovely bird shown in a wonderful light and with perfect sharpness. The atlantic Puffins have often some kind of melancholic look, like this one. Lovely grey background as contrast.
Kind regards

Hello Ahmet,
Once again a wonderful image taken from a very good angle and POV. Exceptional quality....Excellent details. Outstanding colors and perfect focus. You managed perfect this composition. Wonderful portrait of very interesting bird.....
Thanks for sharing!

hallo Ahmet

and with a BEAUTY of a picture
great sharpness good details and beautiful colours

thanks greeting lou

Dear Ahmet,

I am absolutely delighted to find your PUFFIN in the gallery. With a little twinge of envy though, because I have never seen a live one! Not even in a Zoo.

I can't hep but think of the Venice carnival. The puffin's little face just like the painted porcelain masks... And I add your work to my theme "nature' oddities".

Thanks for sharing , and I make your photo a favorite.

You obviously had a great trip , and I think you must have felt as I did in Antarctica...
Warm greetings from the Tzaneen Dam in Limpopo, South Africa
