Merhaba Ahmet,
What a splendid catch.
I tried and I pose it, but ... with some not so good results.
Excellent framing and playback.
Have a nice day,

Merhaba Ahmet bey,
Beautiful composition and absolutely perfect timing: I don't remember if I ever saw any photo on TN made with 1/4000 sec. shutter. Brilliant. I bookmark the image with a little green star - this tells more than my incomplete English sentences. :)
Thanx a lot for sharing this beauty.
Best regards, László
