Hello Heidi,
Splendid bird and taken very well. Very good low POV, nice colours of BG and sunlight is very good.
Regards, Pawel

fantastic ...

Hy Heidi
A species that is not very present here, maybe due to the fact that is not common. And you captured very well, with the feathers around the neck in a quite characteristic position. Well done.

Wonderful photo of this Ruff taken from a perfect low POV. The breeding plumage of these birds is always very impressive. Beautiful colours and very sharp. Great composition and OOF BG.

Hi Heidi,
I am always amazed by the beauty of their breeding plumage. Looks lovely.
Best wishes,

Hallo Heidi
Sjoe! meaning Wow! in Afrikaans. Once more Sjoe! It is indeed a display of beauty and grace. The colours and details are wonderful and very eye-catching. I am actually a bit jealous and envy you for this one. It is really very beautiful. Presented in a most favourable and pleasant manner. A super sharp, well focused and perfectly framed image. The details on the plumage is striking and lovely to look at. Thanks for sharing. Kind regards.

Hi Heidi,
I wrote one another photo of this bird that it is not present in Turkey and I never seen before. However, I saw here the species of the bird and surprised. Because yhis species also present in Turkey and I saw it several times. It present in Turkey in nonbreeding season and so in very different plumage. That is why I could not recognize it. TFS. Regads,
