Merhaba Bayram dostum,
This is a wonderful shot for me!
Not only because this pair of Testudo graeca are taken from a great POV with fine sharpness and natural colours, but because it reminds me of the first time we saw such a sight! In Alanya 22 years ago!
We heard a knocking sound and when we turned round we saw the male approaching the female in this way.
Thanks for sharing this fine image and reminding me of a great experience that I only have an old slide of.
Have a great weekend,

My dearest friend Bayram
Thank you for posting this detailed photo of Testudo graeca showing in the foreground their habitat in natural colours.
I do not think this species is found in South Africa. Here, all tortoises are strictly protected, not that it helps them - many still end up in cooking pots.
Many perish in the annual veld-fires in winter...
I wish you a nice week-end

Bayram hocam artık uzun ara veriyorsunuz. Türkçe ve Ingilizce sunum eminim zaman alıyordur. Ama büyük bir bilgi kaynağı oluşturacağından eminim. Zamanlaması harika bir çekim olmuş. Benim Kıbrıs'tan çektiğim Testudo'yu hatırlattı:) Kıbrıs'ta doğal bulunmadığını da birkez daha hatırlamış oldum:) Emeklerinize sağlık. Saygılar.

Merhaba SA Bayram,
Nice capture of this serious couple in its favourite Spring activity. We miss the sound! :) Excellent management of light and low POV. Good idea to use your telelens to preserve their intimacy ;)
Have a nice weekend in the sun,

It is almost as a movie script and you find all these actors who are good at what they do; although the turtle on top looks extremely passive...reckon thats instinct of course....no lust...not outside of huumans..TFS my friend.
Nihayet aşk da olsa sürüngenlere döndünüz:) Bilgiler çok doyurucu ve aydınlatıcı. Sizin kadar bu işe emek veren ve iki dilli olarak yazan herhalde yok. Bir de Hakkari'de bulunan Testudo perses var galiba . Onun durumu nedir?

A lovely capture of this pair of Tortoises performing an act that brings back memories from Alanya. We really couldn't make out where the knocking sound came from until we were really close and discovered two like this! A very fine low POV, great sharpness and beautiful natural colours.
TFS and have a nice Sunday! Ulla

what a great timing you had to shoot this photo,
for me it is the first time i see turtles in loving action,
this photo Bayram confirms once again that you are
one of TN's best and master photographers,
i love the low POV at their level, TFS
In the time I have been in the Kruger all the creatures you have captured where really having fun with all their love making. I am sure you must be exhausted capturing all of them in action. Ha-ha only joking. What a fine image which I have never seen before. Details of the image as a whole is seen beautifully, and as Ingrid says it is good to see the natural habitat and lovely true to nature colours. Thanks for sharing. Best regards.

Seeing mating Tortoises is a new experience for me, Prof Bayram. Thanks for widening my horizons.
This pair is extremely well captured from a frontal point of view. The expressions of ecstasy can be seen clearly on their faces.

A fine presentation of these two love making tortoise. Excellent exposure for being shot in such harsh lighting. Another attractive low profile shot, showing wonderful detail and natural colors. Well done!!
They remind me alot of the Box Turtles we have here in Ohio.

Love in the nature, under harsh sunlight... Sounds quite interesting and motivating. :) Great shot from a beautiful POV, spectacular view with the young pornstars. :) Fantastic sharpness, lights, DoF and background blur, and a gorgeous image overall, even if the grey canvas isn't my cup of love. :)
Congrats, tfs, friendly regards, take care on your health, László

Dear, little brother,
I wonder, where you were hidden to get this point of view? :-) it looks as if you had dug a hole for yourself, in order to be below the mating pair.
I added your work to my theme " Animals' sex life" thanks for sharing..
Tortoises mating appear to work hard.
We had "inherited " from the Vet injured (wired up) tortoises, and the wiring was of course obstructive :-)
Your comprehensive notes are very instructive, thank you for all the hard work
Have a nice day,
