Büyük Akbalıkçıl
Egretta alba (Linnaeus, 1758)
Great White Egret
Taken in Gediz Delta- Izmir.

The Great White Egret is one of Europe's most graceful looking birds due to its impressive size and pure white plumage. It could conceivably be mistaken for the equally white Little Egret but it is the size of a Grey Heron, and has a longer, often kinked, neck, all-yellow legs and feet and, in winter, a yellow, not black bill.

Habitat: Breeds in extensive areas of reeds, usually by large shallow lakes or fishponds.

Population:
A minimum of 2500-5000 pairs breed in Europe. Russian population 10000-11500 Turkish population 100-500

Merhaba Selen,
Bu hafta sonu Büyükçekmece gölü etrafında ben de bol bol gri ve büyük akbalıkçıl fotografı çektim.Hava çok bulutlu olduğundan hepsi siyah beyaz gibi çıktı:)Senin yakaladığın poz çok güzel.Ayaktan süzülen su damlacıkları,kanatlara vuran ışık,kadraj ve kompozisyon mükemmel olmuş.Bu arada yeni lensin hayırlı olsun,benim ilk canon setimi sattığımda en çok üzüldüğüm ve yerine muadilini nikonda koyamadığım bir lensti.Selamlar,ellerine sağlık!

Merhaba Selen,
Gediz'e el attın bakıyorum :). Zamanlaman çok güzel, ters ışıkta kanat çok estetik çıkmış. Eline sağlık.

Hi Selen,

A very good picture of a flying bird. They are always difficult. The light was not perfect but you managed well. Very well done.

Merhaba Selen Hanım,
Mükemmel netlikte bir çekim ve olağanüstü bir hareketin donması. Kuşun ayağından damlayan sular bile öylece kalakalmış karede. Kadraj enfes. Ellerinize sağlık, selamlar

Merhaba Selen... una hermosa captura en pleno vuelo con gran iluminación, agudeza y el foco exacto.
Me agrada la posición del ave captada así como el detalle de las gotas de agua congeladas en el aire.
El efecto traslúcido del ala aporta un maravilloso bonus a la escena.
Un cordial saludo desde Buenos Aires... Ricardo

Merhaba Selen... a beautiful capture in the middle of flight with great lighting, sharpness and the exact focus.
I like the position of the bird captured as well as the detail of the drops of water frozen in the air.
The translucent effect of the wing contributes a wonderful bonus to the scene.
A cordial greeting from Buenos Aires... Ricardo
