Haloo Mustafa Bey, glad to see your namesake in one of your photos! Such a lovely mammal (from my point of view) rendered nicely sharp with soo sharp lower incisors! Good work and good information. Thanks a lot.

Dr, Mehmet hocama katılıyorum. arada bir senin nickname olan bu elemanı çekmek de yarar var. Bu sefer renkleri de çekimi de çok çok güzel. netlik ve kompozisyon da çok iyi. eline sağlık.

nice portrait, TFS Ori

I wonder how you got a chance to catch this moment?
Nicely done!

Bonjour Mustapha
Voila une photo inhabituelle ! Ce n'est pas tous les jours qu'on a l'occasion d'en voir sur tn, surtout dans cette attitude. Joli travail, donc !

Interesting to see this unusual (for me) animal - do you have a "face shot"?
