merhaba Akif bey,
iki güzel tür, hatta üç tür (fareyle; sanırım kısa kuyruğu ile yine bir Microtus). Aksiyon sahnesi çok hoş, güzel kompozisyon. zamanlama çok iyi. hafif gren olsa da çekimin güzelliği kapatıyor. eline sağlık selamlar.

Hi Akif
Wonderful capture and so well seem. Spot on with the timing.

Wow, this is an excellent capture!

Hola Akif.- Foto muy original, de belleza y accion. Los colores son suaves y finos, con gran nitidez y exelente fondo. Muy bien el enfoque, que es dificil lograr dado su movimento.
Saludos Luis52.

Hello Akif,
An amazing capture showing the behaviour of a juvenile Peregrin Falcon in trying to steal the prey of a greast White Egret. This is sharp and well exposed against the sky but the distance has affected the technical quality a little.
An excellent shot otherwise.
Thanks for sharing this one,
Best wishes, Ivan

Stunning capture
Very unic
especially the face of the peregrine is so nice to look at.
Daring move from the peregrine. Both bird are prooved killers.
The only thing I miss is how the story ended. Was the stealing successful?

Only 30 points???
This is a great ornitological document.
