[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
The shot is from last summer and belongs to Lanius minor - Karalınlı Örümcekkuşu [TR], Lesser Grey Shrike [EN] which is one of the largest species of the Shrike family, LANIIDAE (PASSERIFORMES) in the Western Palaearctic.
It is similar in appearance to the Great Grey Shrike - Lanius excubitor and the Southern Grey Shrike - L. meridionalis. It is slightly smaller than the Great Grey Shrike, and has a black forehead and relatively longer wings.

This species breeds in southeastern Europe and into Asia and it prefers dry open lowlands, and is prominent on telephone wires.

This medium-sized migratory passerine eats large insects, small birds, rodents and lizards. Like other shrikes it hunts from prominent perches, and impales corpses on thorns or barbed wire as a "larder".

ps application was performed by my friend, Dr. Fatih İzler (izler). Thank you very much my friend.

Hi Ahmet,

What a fantastic angle you captured this Shrike in. Wonderful clarity of the face, body, wings, tail feathers and even the feet. Beautiful natural colors against the lovely blue sky. I love the diagonal composition and all the space you left in front of the bird.

Amazing shot Ahmet.
Perfectly sharp details, great action capture.

Merhaba Hocam,
Eski lensle bu örümcek kuşunun harika bir karesi olmuş. Uçar bir örümcek kuşunda bu kadar güzel detaylar ve göz teması sağlamak her babayiğidin harcı değil. Emeğine sağlık.

Hi Ahmet.
Very impressive in-flight picture of the bird. I like so attractive POV and location of the bird image in the frame as well as its wingspread which underlines the precipitancy of the flight. Colours and exposure of the image are excellent and details of the bird also is very good. My compliments and kind regards.
Alexei.

wow, great capture, TFS Ori
