I already posted three species of this group (my shots can be seen clicking links on species names). This fifth one and it is Anas strepara - Boz Ördek [TR], Gadwall [EN].

I have been in a trip for four days. I cant find internet connection and I can visit for several minutes TN. Sorry, I cant write to your posts now, as I have enough time. I hope when I will come back at the weekend.

Merhaba Ahmet,

Very good POV and choice.

Hi Ahmet,

I always look forward to seeing a new in-flight shot from you. This duck has such a sleek look and is so graceful as he flies through the sky. I love the wonderful details of the wings in their downward position.

Hi Ahmet.
Classic photo of fling duck. Wingspread and composition of the shot as well as the freezing of the scene are spot on. Nice, clear shot. Thanks a lot and best wishes.
