Hi Tamer.

Superb capture of the Shrike, enjoying its meal whilst holding more food in its foot, nice sharp detail and great colours and light.


Hi Tamer,
Great shot. Nice composition and details.

Hi Tamer,
what a great moment you captured there. Timing is just perfect.
Sharpness is very good, as is the beautiful colored background.
Nice POV and composition.

What an amazing shot, Tamer.
This shrike has, not one, but two morsels for dinner...
one in the beak and one its claws.
The POV is just fantastic.
Great sharpness, light, and DOF.
TFS. : )

Spettacolare momento di cattura, ottimo POV, molto bella la composizione, buona nitidezza e e molto belli i colori. Grazie e complimenti. Ciao Maurizio

Hello Tamer,
What an excellent photo! Great clear colours and sharp details. Very nice scene and timing. POV and pose are superb in a beautiful composition and with a good neutral BG.

A fine macro-reproduction of a beautiful specimen Tamer, the POV is ideal, the limited DOF perfect for the fine focusing of the anterior part of the feeding bird, also finely capturing the reserve food in one foot, which nicely demonstrates the shrike's feeding strategy. Good work indeed!

Tamer Bey çok güzel. Güzel türmüş. Henüz göremedim. Tebrikler. Selamlar

Zamanlama ve poz cok guzel. Tebrikler

Hallo Tamer
Fantastic portrait with excellent detail, perfect colours and depth of field with not a hint of noise anywhere. Excellent framing and superb focus. The different layers of colours and markings in the plumage are just great. The composition and pose is stunning. Such a gready bird. Eating one insect and holding another one in its paw. I also fancy the flash light you captured in the eye. Thanks for sharing this delightful photo.
Best regards

Tebrikler Tamer , nefis olmuş .
