Herpestes ichneumon - Kuyruksüren [TR], Egyptian Mongoose, Ichneumon [EN], Afrika kökenli bir yırtıcı (CARNIVORA: HERPESTIDAE) olup; ülkemizde güney ve güneybatı illerimizde görülür. Fare ve yılan yakalamadaki ustalığı nedeniyle eski zamanlarda kedi niyetiyle evlerde beslenmiş ve Eski Mısırlılarca kutsal sayılıp; piramidlerdeki hiyerogliflerde bile yer almıştır. Bu nedenle "Firuvunfaresi" olarak da bilinir. Uzun kuyruğu, ardından yere sürünerek geldiğinden "Kuyruksüren" adı daha doğrudur. Zira bu tür fare olmayıp, bir yırtıcıdır.
Fotoğraf, kamışlar arasındaki dar bir patika yolda kısa bir süre poz verdiğinde Göksu Deltası'nda arabadan çekilmiştir. Yol arkadaşım Murat Demirtaş (YALNIZ KURT)'a teşekkür ederim. Yükleme işlemi tamamladıktan sonra gördüm ki Murat da TN'ye ilk fotoğrafını yüklemiş. Hoşgeldin sevgili Murat.

Wow Ahmet! This surely must be a breathtaking moment for you! The eye contact here is incredible! The golden coat of that lovely creature is spectacular. Good simple composition, brilliant depth of field and detail! Bravo! Special shot indeed.

George Veltchev

Lovely eye contact , except for the colors this looks like a striped necked mongoose which is found in India ( it has a reddish fur ).

This is a fine frontal capture showing its features with excellent sharpness and colours from a great low POV. Excellent eye contact too!
Great to see and learn something new!

Hello.
Fine photography of this species that i´m seeing for the first time. Accurate light management, colour and focusing.
Greetings.

very good scene Ahmet, beautiful animal, I like the photo moment with a little surprise, natural great photo! TFS Nasos

valla hocam, ne enteresan hayvanlar görüyorsunuz. Ben daha bir ayı göremedim doğada, kaldı ki bunlar bana hayal kadar uzak. Sayenizde ilginç hayvanlar görüyoruz. Bu fotoları gördükçe insan kendi fotolarını koymaya utanıyor hocam... Porsuk veya sansargillerden galiba.
