Fikret bey, merhaba
Arıkuşu’nu çok iyi yakalayıp görüntülemişsiniz, .. kutlarım. Görüntülediğiniz kuşların çoğu gibi bunu da görüntüleme şansım olmadı henüz. Bizim buralarda pek rastlanan bir tür değil mâlesef. Renk ve detay iadesi özendiriyor, .. pozlama seçimi ise son derece etkili. Paylaşım için teşekkürler. İyi bir hafta sonu dileğim ve selâmlarımla.

Hello Fikret,
One of my all time favorite birds here on TN is the colorful Bee-eaters. You have captured this one perfectly as he is about to devour a bee for lunch. Perfectly timed shot and showing him in all his beautiful glory!! Great work!!

This is a fantastic capture! Technically excellent, and the bird caught in the act of doing exactly what a bee-eater is expected to do!
