[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
On September 18th, 2007, I posted first photograph of this small beautiful bird to TN. I captured some other shots of same species in Bucakçayır with small pond in suburban area of Niğde Province. This is one of them and belongs to Calidris minuta (Leisler, 1812) – Küçük Kumkuşu [TR], Little Stint [EN], a species of the family Scolopacidae and one of seven species of the genus Calidris in Turkiye.
C. minuta is the smallest Calidris species with body of 12-14 cm in the Western Palaearctic Region. It is similar to C. alpina with body of 16-20 cm. But C. minuta has smaller size and shorter and straight bill.

I hope you will like it and its reflection. Thanks for your visit.

Merhaba sevgili Ahmet Bey,

Uzun bir aradan sonra tekrar burada olmak ve senin güzel kareni izlemek çok güzel. Gerçekten çok başarlı bir iş çıkartmışsın. Kuşun netliği olağanüstü. Yansıması da cabası olmuş. Çok fazla yoruma ihtiyacı olmayan bir fotoğraf. Muhteşem görünüyor. Tebrik ederim.

Ahmet, Is it looking at himself through the mioor or is it giving a pose? In anyway the shot is superb with such a lovey BG. Ganesh (Can u pls send me what software you use for framing? If PS pls send me a note pls?) Ganesh

Hello Ahmet,
This is one of the best images of Calidris minutus that I have ever seen. Superb sharpness, detail, composition, low POV, OOF natural BG and pose.
Well done and thanks for sharing this!
Best wishes, Ivan

Congratulations. I think that this is an awesome photo. The mirror image of this bird is stunning. The still water makes it possible to see the colour and the details of the bird in fine detail as if with the real thing, and is quite impressive. I like the colourful and well detailed patterns on the plumage. A real striking presentation with good focus and details. Well framed and great focus.
Thanks for sharing.
Kind regards
Anna

Sayın Dr. güzel çekim eline sağlık...
