Calidris minuta
I visited again very small pond in suburban area, called Bucakçayır, of Niğde in the early morning of 18th September. Small and eliptic lakelet is around 10x10 m. I captured many bird photographs there, e.g. Phoenicopterus ruber, Gallinago gallinago, Charadrius alexandrinus, Merops apiaster. One of the most common species was Calidris minuta.
Calidris minuta (Leisler, 1812) – Küçük Kumkuşu [TR], Little Stint [EN] is a member of the family Scolopacidae. The genus Calidris is represented by seven species in Turkiye. These species are
* Calidris canutus – Büyük Kumkuşu (Knot)
* Calidris alba – Ak Kumkuşu (Sanderling)
* Calidris minuta – Küçük Kumkuşu (Little Stint)
* Calidris temminckii – Sarıbacaklı Kumkuşu (Temminck's Stint)
* Calidris fuscicollis – Ak Sokumlu Kumkuşu * (White-Rumped Sandpiper)
* Calidris ferruginea – Kızıl Kumkuşu (Curlew Sandpiper)
* Calidris alpina – Karakarınlı Kumkuşu (Dunlin)

Today is my son, İbrahim Göktuğ’s 9th birthday and I dedicated this shot to him as a small gift.

Hello Ahmet,
This is superb! You have Captured this Little Stint with great sharpness, lighting, colour and BG. Fantastic composition with the water fading away to the neutral BG and a fine reflection in the FG. Excellent dedication to your son!
Well done and TFS!

Hello Ahmet,
Very sharp and beautiful capture of the Little Stint in profile. I like the strip of light in the still water and the reflection. Beautiful colours and an excellent composition.
TFS and regards, Ulla

Hi,
Very beautiful shot of this bird.
Great pov, focus and colors; nice reflections to...
Best regards,
Iulian

Oh, Happy late birthday to your son Ahmet! :) This is a very nice picture with excellent exposure, POV, colors and composition. We have similar birds here as well and they are called in French Chevalier. All is beautiful, the only thing missing in my opinion, is a little catch-light in its eye but I know that it is not always possible. Thanks!
Claudine

Hi Ahmet,
your son have got a nice gift,
this is a beautiful and well composed picture with a nice low POV.
Fine details and good DOF, the bird is well seen against the BG.
The reflection is a nice bonus, pity you could not got the whole on.
Very good work.

merhaba ahmet bey.
yine harikalar yaratmışsın çok güzel bir resim olmuş ellerine salık başarılarının devamını dilerim.
mehmet

Sayın Dr. güzel çekim eline sağlık...
