We are neighbors today and both with birds. Mine is a looong way off but yours is fine in clarity due its close in capture. Very timely click as the bird is about ready to pounce..VERY nice image!

what a wonderful picture of Water Pipit taken with superb sharpness, just at right moment you have captured this marvellous posture of the beautiful bird and the tiny fish, POV, DOF and colours are excellent in a very pleasant composition.

I wonder what that poor fish was doing there Ömer, an interesting and finely isolated capture in good exposure and fine DOF control my friend, TFS indeed!

What stroke of good luck to have you as my neighbour on the gallery today, Omer!!
It is the theme of this picture that really puts it into a class unto itself -- the 'conversation' between the two subjects before the inevitable happens. It is a timely action shot that one can get only in a lifetime.
The image is technically not bad at all; the Pipit seems to be excited -- going by the expression on its face. The fish looks surprised -- maybe a little too late to reverse its action of popping out at the wrong time, ha, ha,ha!

Ömer Bey merhaba
siz top class değil deseniz de harika bir çekim. zamanlama ve av sahnesi harika. belge olarak da çok çok güzel ve özel. sabah Trakuşa Osman bey, böcek larvası yerken yüklemişti. ben de sıkça görüyorum, özellikle Niğdede yaygın ama hiç bir yerde balık yediğini görmemiştim. elinize sağlık, çekimi de çok güzel. elinize sağlık, selamlar.

the expression of bird gives dynamics in photo,
very good work

Nice capture of the bird busy eating the fish. Good sharpness, details and light. a lower POV would have given a better picture. But capturing this rare moment is big in itself. :)
Thanks for the share,
Ömer Bey, süperrr zamanlı bir kare. Her zmanki gibi mükemmel çekmişsiniz. Elinize sağlık üstat.
Günaydın Ömer Bey, yine sıradışı mükemmelikte bir fotoğraf. Zaten sizden farklısı gelse şaşardım... Usta her zman usta.

it is not only the photographic elements that counts. The moment of capturing in difficult situation is also being considered greatly. But to me, in this shot...you got both. The beauty and the moment.
Excellent presentation Omer. Really outstanding as per its colours and sharpness, composition and lighting.
NB: It is quite interesting, our common name for this bird is also pipit.
Omer bey selamlar. yine cok guzel bir fotograf. Hep de boyle onemli anlari cekiyorsunuz. Bu sizi ve karelerinizi ozel kiliyor. Tesekkurler.

Hello Omer !
You may say the picture is not top quality, but I think you are wrong on this point - it's excellent. Your timing was perfect and you've captured a great moment, wonderful pose of the bird with beak wide open, ready to eat the fish. Very well done !

A fantastic capture!
I did not know Water Pipits eat small fish, so this fine sharp shot is not only good to look at but I have learnt from it!
Excellent POV, sharpness and composition: very good quality shot IMHO!
Thanks and best regards,

Realismo y oportunismo em esta toma Omer. No es fácil ni descubrir estas escenas ni mucho menos captarlas, por lo que creo que se trata de un buen documento.

You present us a surprising picture. First, I said to myself, how come that a little fish is "standing" in the grass. After your notes, I understood that it was the only way for him to have a little conversation with that bird...
A pleasant, humerous and instructive posting.

I missed this one when I was on vacation! Fantastic timing to get this once in a lifetime shot. The expression on the Pipit's face is priceless. The bird and the fish are wonderful with natural colors and excellent details. Have to feel sorry for the poor little fish who was in the wrong place at the wrong time. A great picture in a wonderful setting.

a very unusual snapshot of a Water pipit's way of having lunch! You seem to be a master of quick reaction, having all your equipment ready when sitting in your car, and creating precisely detailed and well composed images at even the most unexpected happenings.
Thank you! With best regards,
Merhaba Ömer Hocam,
Very interesting image of You again. As far as I knew, Water Pipit doesn't eat fish, only insects. About quality: I don't say it isn't top quality, I rather say You were a bit lazy to do necessary post-procession. There's a lot of oof grass-blades in the foreground - they should be cropped. Background noise must be removed. Color tones are too warm - but this is a question of personal taste, so I don't critique it. Overall conclusion: a halfly done excellent bird shot.
I give the dark green smiley (and the 100th points to the image) now, because the pic - as mentioned - is very interesting, and an example of quick reaction, but please don't be lazy next time. :)
Your Hungarian Friend, László

Priceless is the first word that came to mind looking at this image filled with character and persona. The expression on the face of this wide opened mouth of the Water Pipit, is marvelous. This image captured from your car window is just once again proof that we do not always have to be up and geared with all the photographic equipment to take an spontaneous image like this one. This was an opportunity you have taken at the time it arouse and although you mention it is not a top quality shot, the whole natural scenery makes up for that is missing to be a top quality shot. Like always it was a pleasure to look and appreciate your wonderful photography. Thanks for sharing.
