Hi Cahit,

What splendid timing to capture this bird in this pose. The wings are just wonderful - you have frozen them so well. Wonderful colors - the background even matches the bird!! Excellent details of the face, plummage and wings. A beautiful picture.

Hello Cahit Bey,
Haven't seen a Wagtail displaying its wing feathers like this before! Even the alula feathers are perfectly discernible. Very good timing and a good exposure from a perfect viewpoint my friend, thank you for sharing this rare instance with us.
