[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Philomachus pugnax (Tr. Döğüşkenkuş, En. Ruff, Da. Brushane, Du. Kemphaan, Fi. Suokukko, Fr. Chevalier combattant, Ge. Kampflaüfer, It. Combattente, No. Brushane, Sp. Combatiente, Sw. Brushane)

Ruffs are taller and leggier than Dunlins, the males being about the size of a Redshank, the females, known as Reeves, being Wood Sandpiper-sized. In all plumages they look rather fat-bodied but small-headed and short-billed, and their upperparts are usually well-patterned with brown and buff. The juveniles show an immaculate scaly pattern above. Ruff leg colours vary, so don't be surprised to find one with legs as red as a Redshank. And look out for birds showing signs of summer plumage, especially white-headed, white-chested males looking quite unlike anything in most bird books. In flight they look relatively long-winged with a narrow pale wing bar but striking white oval patches in the sides of the tail.

Merhaba Hocam,
İyi netlikle güzel bir kare olmuş, elinize sağlık. Gagasının ucundaki toprak kalıntılarına bakılırsa besleniyormuş galiba? Paylaşım için teşekkürler.

Hi Mustafa

Great shot of a ruff, a species I've only seen twice.
Good non-breeding plumage shot.
Excellent sharpness and good composition.

Hello Mustafa,

Great sharpness and details, the Ruff looks busy.. Well done

Çok güzel bir örnek Mustafa, renklenmesinin BG ile uyumlu olması kamuflaj etkisi oluşturmaktan ziyade kuşun renklenme detaylarını daha da ön plana çıkarmış, hoş, doğal bir etki oluşmuş. Ellerine sağlık dostum.
