-See daddy is bringing food...
-Yeah... one day i will fly like he does...

Little bee-eaters growing day by day soon they will be all gone...

Additional information: I spent some time there and the birds know me after being there some times, not going out of the car so they can keep feeding their babies without being extremely disturbed. It was a bit luck but also i was there and ready cause i knew that this could come ...Thanks for your questions

Very interesting and creative shot. Did you time it this way, or just get lucky?
It is too bad the flying bird wasn't closer to the nest opening so we could get a little more detail.

Good photo. Great colurs and sharpness. Funny speed-effect!


Hello Mehmet great capture , just balanced nicely with the youngsters in the BG and him speeding across the image. Was this luck or had you noticed his flight path before?
TFS yours Robert

Excellent capture, Mehmet!
Lovely colors, really good POV and nice sharp details....except the "daddy" which is great like this, giving the right impression over the speed. Very well done.
Bravo and TFS

Interesting shot. I was looking it for quite a while, thinking a motion blur would have been beter than a out of focus blur. And also thinking how to do it:
- f/32 if your camera support it.
- Hoping dad would fly closer to the nest next time. Maybe putting a grey filter in front of the lens to reduce light and have more motion.
- Doing it before that the grown-up's take off for good.
- Having lot of luck.

Merhaba Mehmet

Adı ve anlatımıyla çok başarılı bir çalışma.
Renkler ve netleme çok güzel...Ellerinize ve deklanşörünüze sağlık...

Merhaba Mehmet Bey,
Gerçekten çok sıradışı bir kare yakalamışsınız. Silüetin yavruların bulunduğu noktaya çok yakın olması ve buna rağmen hiç bir parçasını kesmemesi, netliğin yavrularda enfes olması ile çok güzel. Gerçekten tebrikler, bu fotoğrafın hakettiğinin altında ilgi görmesi ilginç ancak sanırım bu kritik yazma ile ilgili, TN'de üyeler fazla kritik yazmayanlara kritik yapmıyorlar. Ama maalesef her siteye vakit ayırmakta zor gerçekten.
Görüşmek üzere...

Wow, very nice!

Mehmet Bey tebrikler.Çok çok güzel bir kare olmuş. Hem renkler, hem kompozisyon hem zamanlama çok iyi.Bu foto favoriler arasına alınmaz da ne yapılır?
