Hello Akif,
Most impressive close-up of this beautiful Buzzard! Fantastic POV and great sharpness.
Beautiful light and colours too. Well done!

Hallo Akif
Being a new member to Trek Nature I am still browsing if time permits. I think at this stage my eyes are working overtime to search for anything that will grab my attention, and I’ll tell you it is quite a difficult task. There are just so many talented photographers on the site and they all have such spectacular portfolios. I found the birds in flight photos in your portfolio exquisite and looking at some of them filled me with excitement, hoping and dreaming that maybe one day I’ll also be able to take a shot of a bird in flight. The details of this Long Legged Buzzard are very good and clear. I especially like the different colours and patterns on the wings. I am sure this must be the feathers the Red Indians use when making their spectacular and impressive headgear. Impressive photo with lots of character. Thanks for sharing.
Kind regards
