[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Gece balıkçılı (Nycticorax nycticorax), balıkçılgiller (Ardeidae) familyasına ait orta boyutlarda bir balıkçıl türü.

Erişkin 64 cm büyüklüğünde ve 800 gr ağırlığındadır. Siyah bir tacı ve arkası vardır, vücudun geri kalanı beyaz veya gridir. Gözleri kırmızı ve kısa bacakları sarı renklidir. Genç kuşlar kahverengi olup beyaz ve gri beneklerler kaplıdır. Bunların kısa boyunlu ve güçlü balıkçıllardır.

Bu kuşlar çoğunlukla geceleyin suyun kenarında avını pusuya düşürmek için beklerler. Gün esnasında ağaçlar veya çalılıklarda dinlenirler. Öncelikle, küçük balıklar, kabuklular, kurbağalar, suya ait böcekler ve küçük memelileri yerler.

The breeding habitat is fresh and salt-water wetlands throughout much of the world. The subspecies N. n. hoactli breeds in North and South America from Canada as far south as Patagonia, and the nominate race N. n. nycticorax in Europe, Asia and Africa. Black-crowned Night Herons nest in colonies on platforms of sticks in a group of trees, or on the ground in protected locations such as islands or reedbeds. Three to eight eggs are laid.

This heron is migratory outside the tropical parts of its extensive range, where it is a permanent resident. The North American population winters in Mexico, the southern United States, Central America, and the West Indies, and the Old World birds winter in tropical Africa and southern Asia.

Hello Cahit,
There's so much to see here. Heron, Turtle, Snake and lovely water flower. All together it's a bit busy, but very beautiful. Great clear colours. A moment you will never forget I think. Good sharpness and composition.

Merhaba Cahit,
A fine capture from last summer of a Night Heron with its captured snake. The sharpness, colours, composition, POV all contribute to make this a fine image of an interesting scene.
Thanks and best regards,
Ivan

Ciao Cahit, wonderful composition with splendid colors, great capture of beautiful bird with fantastic red eye, very well done, ciao Silvio

Hi Cahit,
I know they eat just any animals. It's still uncommun to see them with a snake. Very interesting capturing.
Sharp details. Clear colorful view.
Also background is nice and special: combo of vivid green blue pink and yellow: flashy!

What a picture, Cahit! I just love those pink flowers coming out the water, and as a bonus, you add this beautiful bird with a snake in its bill. This is amazing to me. It is beautiful that you left the whole scene with a wide dof, everything is sharp and the colours are stunning. Thank you!

Ohhh... ohhh... Ne müthiş bir an. Bizin su yılanı gece balıkçılına yem olmuş:) Tam bir aksiyon karesi. Önemli bir bilimsel belge aynı zamanda... tebrikler Cahit Bey. Kompozisyon da bir o kadar mükemmel. Çizgili Kaplumabağamız ve Çiçeklerin yarattiği güzel ortam da cabası. Tam bir doğa karesi. Belgesel tadında... Tek kelime ile süperrrr....
Bu arada Memleketten döndünüz anladığım kadarı ile. Hoşgeldiniz. Umarım beğenmişsinizdir.
Selamlar,

Bayram

Hi Cahit.
What a pictorial scene at whole and amazing pictured moment. Water plants and flowers create a wonderful scenery and bird with its prey supplements the scene perfectly. They are reproduced with fantastic skill. Sharpness, details are stunning as well as composition of the image. Great work. My compliments.

Hi Cahit,

One of the most spectacular shots I have seen! Fantastic timing to capture the Heron with the Snake hanging from his bill. His red eye is shining. The setting could not be more beautiful with the wonderful leaves and pink flowers. This is picture perfect and straight to my favorites.
