hello my friends,
I have been in Turkish Thrace, namely European part of Turkiye for three days. I have been also from internet and many thanks for your visiting and critiques.

This is my second post for Miliaria calandra (L., 1758) – Tarla Kirazkuşu, Tarla Çintesi [TR], Corn Bunting [EN]), which is a member of the bunting family Emberizidae of passerine bird.
I already gave some information about species under my previous post (see photo).
Another shot can be seen on Workshop.

This photo was taken from car window near Çatalca District of Istanbul Province. I dedicate it to elder brother Fikret CAN (eke1).

Hello Ahmet!
This time only a short comment (I am a little too tired :>). Very nice capture of Corn Bunting. Sharpness, clarity and colouration are 1st class :)

This is a very clear shot of a Corn Bunting, Dr Ahmet.
How fortunate to get such a wonderful POV from the window of your car!
The focus is spot on and the features of the bird have been captured in sharp detail.
Well done and TFS.

Hello Ahmet,

The bird in your photo is shown with extreme sharpness so that even finest feathers can be seen in great details. The fine light you have had was well used getting fine saturated colors. There is a fine match between birdd's plumage and background colors.

Thank you for sharing,

Hi Ahmet,

A beautiful Corn Bunting and a wonderful image. It's hard to believe you took this from the car! I love the pose as he looks over his shoulder. The colors and details of the face, eye and feathers are marvelous. The background is perfect and shows the bird off to full advantage. A magnificent composition.
