Merhaba MF Akhi Ahmet,
this is a real capture, depicting the beauty of the head and its moment. The red beak really shows off in a disticnt colour and excellent sharpness. how lively it is to see the feather in its fine view. The lighting is well selected giving a pleasant overall composition.
Very well presented shot of this long beaked guy.
well done and enjoy the weekend.

Merhaba Ahmet,
A superb close capture of Limosa lapponica, well timed to show the open bill and head with superb sharpness and colours in fine lighting against a neutral BG.
You handle your long lens well to give us this delightful close-up.
Cok tesekkür dostum,

Ahmet bey selamlar,
Zamanlama, mükemmel ..!
Tür ve portre çok güzel yansıtılmış.Akşam güneşi ve yanal ışık güzel kullanılmış.
İyi bir haftasonu, dileklerimle,

What an impressively long beak on this Godwit, Dr Ahmet!
The slanting light creates a kind of spotlight effect on its face and the effective DOF isolates the subject against the plain BG.
Thanks for sharing this great portrait.

Salam Ahmet. This is nice close capture and the beaks are long and sharp. Unique bird like I have never seen before. Thanks for sharing and best regards. Jusni

amazing close up Ahmet, really impressive!

Dear Ahmet,
I look at this bird and wonder how this poor animal takes off or lands without falling over the extra long beak. It looks most unbalanced ( like I with my four-pronged walking stick :-))

I add your amazing bird to my theme "nature's oddities"
Thanks for sharing.

Your notes like always are extensive and informative.
I can't help wondering about evolution/ why the beak became so extremely long. The bird must battle continuously with gravity...

Have a good week
Warm greetings from the Tzaneen Dam in Limpopo, South Africa
