[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
I already mentioned on yesterday's post of mine that I will upload some new shots, which I captured them in Melendiz Mountains when we searched some dragonflies (Odonata). This is the first of them and belongs to very beautiful passerine bird species: Serinus serinus (Linnaeus, 1758) – Kanarya, Küçük İskete [TR], Serin, European Serin [EN].
The species is from the family FRINGILLIDAE and one of two species of the genus Serinus Koch, 1816 in Turkiye. Second species is S. pusillus (Pallas, 1811)
– Kara İskete (Red-Fronted Serin) (my previous post on the link). Somebody listed three species with S. citrinella (Pallas, 1764) (sometimes as Carduelis citrinella)- Alp İsketesi (Citril Finch)] from Turkiye.
S. serinus is a small bird with 11.5 cm in size. I already posted a shot the species from Denizli (see the link for the previous post).
New post was taken near Gebere Resorvoir or Damlake in last week. When I drove soil road, I saw it on old wire. It tried to supply balance against strong wind.
The species is winters in Hatay Province, the most south corner of the country. It is resident in other regions, except for Eastern and Southeastern Turkiye. It is relatively rare in the Central Anatolia and Eastern Karadeniz [Black Sea].
The photo was taken by camera on hand. I submit it directly except for RAW to JPEG and some crop. Another shot of the same bird is presented as a WORKSHOP.
I hope you will like it. best wishes.

Hi Ahmet,
Good DOF and POV. Windy apparently:-).
The perch is not a branch but the fellow doesn't seem to care:-)
Very good note.

Hi Ahmet,

This pretty little bird resembles our House Finch - different colors but same beak and appearance. I love the pose as he looks over his shoulder. Maybe he's wondering why no leaves grow from the wire. Beautiful colors and nice details of his face, eye, beak and plummage.

Merhaba Ahmet,
A fine portrait of a male Serin, taken with its head turned and from a fine POV. Technically first class.
This species is a rare but annual summer visitor to Southern Sweden and one day I hope to take a shot as good as this one!
Thanks for sharing this delight,
Selamlar,

Hello Ahmet,
Very lovely capture of this little Serin in a fine pose with turned head. Excellent sharpness and beautiful colours.
Many thanks and regards, Ulla

Hi Amhet,
This bird looks a lot like our House Finch (male) but in yellow instead of red :)! This is a very sharp capture with lovely lighting, brilliance, composition and pose from your cute model! Thanks,
Claudine

Merhaba Ahmet Bey,
Aslında bütün fotoğraflarınızı beğendim ama ben bu tatlı kuşa birşeyler yazmak istedim. Kıbrısta artık eskisi kadar sık görmüyoruz kanaryaları ama ben küçükken çok vardı. Nerdeyse nasıl bir kuş olduğunu unutuyormuşum:) Renkler ve netlik harika olmuş. Ellerinize sağlık. Paylaşım ve not için teşekkürler.

I am amazed about the bright and intense yellow colour of this bird. You managed to capture him in a beautiful pose with good clarity and details. A very impressive image of this vividly coloured bird. The yellow is very intense and creates the feeling of joy and cheerfulness. Thanks for sharing and introducing a new bird to me.
Kind regards

Salam Ahmet. Beautiful shot again of this bird with the head turning back on the barb wire. The background is totally silenced like a very fine macro. The exposure of the plumage is brilliant and very well done. Best regards. Jusni

Quite nice. TFS.
