Hi Volkan,
Splendid shot. Great moment captured (though not sure whether it was a great for that fly). Lovely colours and a superb smooth BG. Excellent POV and DOF. I like the intense look and the impeccable concentration of the bird. Fabulous eyes. Very nicely composed and presented. Kudos.


What timing! Amazing picture. The colors are lovely. The background is smooth. The catch light on the eye is attractive. Thanks for sharing.

Dear Volkan
one of my favorite shot in this site . Well done.

Hello Volkan,
You had an amazing timing here. Those guy are impressive. Those colors are superb and so are details, POV and composition. I also like this background a lot. Thanks,

I don't envy that bee. :-) What a fantastic shot! Impeccable timing too. You certainly deserve possibly the best compliment a photographer can get: "I wish I got that shot!" ;-) Thanks very much for sharing. It'd be great to provide the name/kind of the bird here too.

Hello Volkan.

Excellent image, nice composition and colors,

Jose Luis.

very impressive! great capture

Hi Volkan,
