The Cyprus feral Donkey, "Equus asinus cyprius" lives as a wild in Karpas Peninsula National Park of Northern Cyprus (TRNC) under conservation. It is an endemic subspecies to the Island. This shot was taken during our herpetological trip to there in April, 2008.

Thanks for looking!

Beautiful shot. the compsoition, lighting and colours all look great. The plants hide the trail the donkeys are taking, creating a sense of mystery, which i like very much.

Orti çok güzel çekmişsin. eline sağlık. bu benim gitmediğim arazide pekçok güzel şey yapmışsınız belli. Tekrar eline sağlık.

Hello Bahadir,
A fine capture of three Cyprus Feral Donkeys in their natural environment.
I like the POV and composition and the fine light of Cyprus in April, which reminds me of our visit but we didn't see these at the time. Perhaps next time!
TFS this fine image, my friend.

Hello Bahadir,
What an interesting capture from Cyprus showing these feral Donkeys. They look very nice in their brown colours and you've captured them in a fine diagonal row trotting up the beautiful green hillside. Lovely light too and a very fine composition.
Many thanks and best wishes, Ulla

Hello Bahadir,
Beautiful photo of this Donkeys. Light and colours are great. Beautiful greens. Excellent DOF and composition.

I was under the impression the donkeys were domestic animals, Bahadir.
Your picture of wild ones dispels my wrong assumption.
It looks like a family of them.
Very good picture showing these wild animals in their habitat.

Onları yakalamak için çok uğraşmıştım ama hiç bu kadar yakına gidemedim. Tebrikler. Harika fotoğraflandırmışsın bizim yabani eşşekleri:) Ellerine sağlık. İyi bir hafta sonu geçirmen dileğiyle.

Bahadir, (WELCOME TO TN.)
EXCELLENT diagonal photography.
Very sharp. EXCELLENT FOCUSING. Wonderful landscape registration.BEAUTIFUL COLOURS. Needs a bit more light, perhaps 2 points. Will try a W/S. Hope you dont mind.
Congratulations.
Mario with friendly greetings from Calgary.

Excelente documento y un buen ángulo de disparo Bahadir. No sabia que vivía esta especie en estado salvaje; realmente me ha impresionado.

Hi Bahadir!

Welcome to the world of TN! But be careful, TN can be a very perennial virus...

You present us a simple, yet pleasant wildlife picture with interesting and instructive notes. The composition is fine, but the colours are a bit undynamic.

Kind regards

Markus

Dear Bahadir,

Hi Bahadir,
this is a really interesting and well taken image, Bahadir. First, I find the composition excellent. Then, what a story behind this: there are feral donkeys and a separate race to boot in Cyprus! Thanks to you I learn interesting things about Cyprus!

Hello Bahadir

Well captured image of these feral donkeys in a natural setting.
I like the diagonal flow of the shot,the way they are fleeing in single file up the track.
Good detail and warm lighting.

Hello Bahadir !
I love everything like horses or donkeys or zebras, but it is rare to see some wild donkeys on TN so I really appreciate this picture. I love how they are walking in a straight line, the young one behind. It is also great to see the natural environment of Cyprus, with this beautiful forest. Very well done !
Valerie.

Hello Bahadir! Excellent scene. Superb landscape. Nice light and natural colours. Good shot. Good luck!

Hi Bahadir,

Very good picture of these donkey climbing up to the thick green forest. The light is beautiful and the framing is very good. TFS and have a nice day.

Hello Bahadir
a nice shot of this donkeys in a great natural environment
lighting and colors are excellent as well as the composition
beautiful shot
Jacqueline

Merhaba Bahadir bey,
Beautiful and very interesting shot, I've never seen this subspecie before - and what's the worst, never heard of it before at all. So Your pic is informing me about their lives and their natural surroundings. Bravo, excellent nature shot.
I don't agree with the WS, on Mario's work colors are oversaturated and by my opinion the original crop's better, too. I prefer Your version, Bahadir.
Tfs, best regards from Hungary, László

Hello Bahadir,
Super well timed shot with moment capture of the running feral donkeys. TFS

Hallo Bahadir
I thought I have critiqued all your photos in your portfolio and to my own shock I found to be wrong. Sorry about that my friend. This is such a peaceful scene to look at. Although taken from quite a distance I can see that these donkeys have lovely thick fur and the colours are real pretty, I especially like the one at the back dark coat. That specific one’s ears are also standing up quite rigid. I quite often think about these trips you go on as it could not only be an educational experience but also a time to "bond" with the rest of the crew, not even to talk about all the photographic opportunities while you there. Thanks for sharing. Best regards.
Anna

Ciao Bahadir. This is a great compo in perspective with best sharpness and amazing tones.

A wonderful capture of these wild Donkey in their natural habitat. They have beautifully marked coats and seem to be in good health. A pleasant photo to view. Well done!!
We have no such animals here in Ohio where I live, but I did see a wild burrow while I was out in the western states a few years ago.

Hi Bahadir

A lovely shot showing these asses in their natural environment. With the domestication of
donkeys, world wide, it is wonderful to see some of these animals still living in full natural
surroundings. Obviously this image was captured from some considerable distance away
from the subjects, but it adds to the atmosphere of the shot and who says animals should
always be captured from up close or full framed.

Well done and TFS.
Take care and have a great weekend.
Regards
Loot

Footnote:
During this time of year the commercialised words "Peace & Goodwill" always gets blown
out or proclaimed in a superfluous plethora of advertisements, catalogues and billboards
by the mass media, radio and TV. Wherever one looks or listens you get blasted with
this notion, but spare a moment in your thoughts and prayers to the ill-fated realities of
those less fortunate. Those that are living in war torn countries, those whose lives were
disrupted by natural catastrophes, those that do not have enough food on the table,
those who are removed from friends and family, those who do not have the privilege of
love and laughter in their lives.

FAITH makes all things possible
LOVE makes all things BEAUTIFUL,
It is my whish that you will have all three of these in abundance for this Christmas.
MERRY CHRISTMAS and a wonderful New Year!
