[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Squacco Heron (Tr:Alaca Balıkcıl)
The Squacco Heron, Ardeola ralloides, is a small heron, 40-49 cm long with 82-95 cm wingspan. It is of Old World origins, breeding in southern Europe and the Middle East. It is a migrant, wintering in Africa. It is rare north of its breeding range.

This is a stocky species with a short neck, short thick bill and buff-brown back. In summer, adults have long neck feathers. Its appearance is transformed in flight, when it looks very white due to the colour of the wings.

Their breeding habitat is marshy wetlands in warm countries. They nest in small colonies, often with other wading birds, usually on platforms of sticks in trees or shrubs. 3-4 eggs are laid.

These herons feed on insects, fish and amphibians.
Wikipedia free Ansiklopedia
TR:Küçük ve tıknaz bir balıkçıldır. İlkbaharda rengi parlak pembemsi-sarımsı kahverengidir ve başındaki açık renk tüyler sırtına kadar uzanır. Diğer zamanlarda rengi mat, açık kahverengi-kremdir ancak uçarken dikkat çekici beyaz kanatlarını gözler önüne serer. Gençlerinin sırtı daha koyudur ve boyunlarının ön tarafı çizgilidir.

This is beautiful! The Heron is glowing in the wonderful light. You captured him in a lovely position. Beautiful colors and superb details - the face and wings are fantastic. The yellow eye matches the yellow feet.

Felisitasyoñ Cahit bey,
What a superb picture ! Composition, diagonal, smooth colors,light effect in the wings. Very well done. Go on shooting as far as it's with a camera ;-)
Definitely one of my favourites.

Hallo Cahit
Amazing in-flight shot with expressive pose and excellent sharpness of the image. I like the impressive wingspan showing of the beauty and actual size of this bird. The expression on the birds face looks very serious and as if he is in deep thought and concentrating at where it is heading to.An excellent presentation. Thanks for sharing.
Kind regards
Anna
