[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Phalaropus lobatus - Denizdüdükçünü [TR], Red-necked Phalarope [EN] is one of the three species of the genus Phalaropus in both of Turkiye and Europe. It is irregular visitor and relatively more common where as Ph. tricolor (Büyük Denizdüdükçünü, Wilson's Phalarope) and Ph. fulicarius (Kızıl Denizdüdükçünü, Grey Phalarope) are vagrant with several records from Turkiye.

This was first meeting for me and they were five. The shot was taken under heavy rain from ground level. I hope you will like it.

Dear Ahmet
Despite the heavy rain (with some nice droplets) beautiful picture with very nice pov, most probably being quite uncomfortable for the photographer

Merhaba Ahmet,
A fine capture of a male P. lobatus. The details, including the rain drops are great, the colours natural and the low POV superb in this pleasing composition.
This species nests in our mountains and we sometimes see them in flocks on the way north or south.
Thanks and best regards from a wintery Sweden,
Selamlar dostum,¨

Güzel bir çalışma olmuş hocam.
