[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
The family CINCLIDAE (PASSERIFORMES) is formed by five species from the genus Cinclus . These species are known as "Dippers" which are named for their bobbing or dipping movements. They are unique among passerines for their ability to dive and swim underwater.
Single species, Cinclus cinclus - Derekuşu [TR], European Dipper, White-throated Dipper [EN], ranges in Western Palaearctic, incl. Turkiye. Three of other species are found in America, last one is seen in Asia:

- Cinclus mexicanus - American Dipper, Water Ouzel in mountainous regions of Central America and western North America from Panama to Alaska,
- Cinclus leucocephalus - White-capped Dipper in South America,
- Cinclus schulzi - Rufous-throated Dipper or Argentine Dipper in Andes of South America,
- Cinclus pallasii - Brown Dipper, Asian Dipper) inhabits in the mountains of southern and central Asia.

The shot was taken a small stream on Melendiz Mountains above Niğde city centre. It dived and then it went out side flying. I captured it in this period. It was very hard to capture, but I managed by my luck.

Dedication to Professor Mustafa Sözen (spalaxtr) who is one of my closest friends.

Hi Ahmet

Lovely action shot with nice eye contact. This is a species I have seen in the UK - but mainly in the upland areas.

Merhaba Ahmet.
Herhalde samimiyetimiz artık "Bey"leri kaldırmanın zamanı geldiğini gösteriyor :) Hem yedi kat yabancılar sana adınla hitab ederken bir hemşehrin olarak benim resmiyete devam etmem yakışık almıyordu :).

Şimdi fotoğrafa gelelim. Geçen demiştim ya, ne uçan ne de kaçan elinden kurtuluyor. O kadar güzel yakalamışsın ki... Söyleyecek söz bulamıyorum. Eline emeğine sağlık.

Selam ve sevgiler.

Merhaba Ahmet,
a fantastic capture of the European Dipper in-flight taken with great timing and superb sharpness, very beautiful colours, excellent POV and composition with a splendid posture of the bird.

Hi Ahmet,

Another wonderful bird which I am seeing for the first time. I love the fine details of the face and the opened wings. Beautiful blacks and whites with the dark eye showing off so nicely. Your in-flight shots are just marvelous.

Sayın Hocam,
Bu türü ilk defa sizinle bu arazimizde görme şansım olmuştu.Daha sonra Maraş/Döngel'de gördüm. Fotoğraf kesiliş olması güzelliğindne birşey kaybettirmemiş.Harika bir kare ve Mustafa Sözen Hoc için harika bir hediye...
Elinize, emeğinize sağlık..
Selamlarımla...
Not: iki güdür Ceyhan Nehri (Hemite civarı)-Kırmıtlı'da arazi yaptım. Benim için çok verimliydi. Hocam, araziye çıktıkça türleri daha iyi ayırt eder oluyorum.

Dr bu güzel hediye için çok teşekkür ediyorum. TNa pek takılmayınca bu güzel hediyeni anca görebildim. Sağolasın dostum. Selamlar.
