This photo is taken last year near Tuzla Lake
early in the morning with my old Canon 30D.

Thanks for looking and have a great week!

Infos from birdguides.com
Little Ringed Plovers :
look superficially similar to Ringed Plovers but they are smaller and have a distinctively furtive jizz with crouching horizontal stance and longer rear-end. For confirmation, the adults have all-dark bills, duller, yellower legs and a diagnostic yellow eye ring. Juveniles also have a yellow eye ring but the lack of a pale eyebrow is a more obvious feature. In flight the Little Ringed Plover is the only small plover which doesn't have an obvious wing bar.
Breeds on river shingle areas in rivers, gravel pits, industrial sites and reservoir margins.
Most birds breed on gravel pits or other man-made sites in central and southern England, but do not nest in Scotland or south-west England. Passage birds can also be seen inland and around the coast.
A widespread breeding bird found in small numbers at sites where lots of gravel or shingle is exposed, such as riversides and gravel pits.

Since the first confirmed nesting in 1938, the British population has increased dramatically and is now estimated at betweeen 825-1 070 pairs.

At least 66,000 pairs in Europe.

Hallo Omer
I actually just want to tell you that this is a "dam" beautiful image. Not only is the Plover beautiful, the whole photo is beautiful. Not only is the whole photo beautiful, the reflection of the Plover in the water is just stunning. I hope by now you realize that I really like this photo. In actual fact I must be frank and tell you that the mirror image in the water is more striking than the actual Plover. But then on the other hand how would I be able to say who is the fairer of the two, if I cannot see where the actual Plover ends and where does the mirror image start? A very good presentation with wonderful colours and detail. Thanks for sharing. I really enjoyed looking at this one.
Kind regards

Hello Omer - what a brilliant capture - it looks like the Plover is standing in silver water - like a mirror. Super capture

Omer, this is an astonishingly sharp and crisp image. The still water is so still it works as a perfect mirror. There is not the slightest distortion on the reflected image of the bird.
These moments are rather rare and either you must have waited for this moment or you were just lucky.
The image is also a giveaway on your technical expertise in digital imaging.
Thanks for sharing this beauty and all the best.

Hi Ömer,
Beautiful capture.Reflections on water are perfect.Very sharp and clear image.Well done,into my favr.

Hello Omer,
What a perfect mirror for this Little Ringed Plover, one of my favourite birds that we see here in some places too. It's very shy though and you've done very well to get this lovely close shot. Excellent sharpness and lovely colours in this very fine composition.
Many thanks, Ulla

Hi Omer,

Just got back from a short tripped and missed this beauty. The Plover and his perfect reflection are wonderful!! Excellent colors and details - I love the yellow eye ring.


Hello Omer,
I just looked at another shot posted by Ivan (argus) with early light. Technically excellent..
That low angle of early light has helped to create an awesome mirrored reflection :)

Hi Omer, this is a beautiful "serene" image.The term "serene" is normally associated with landscapes, but to tell you the truth, this image evoked a calmness in me, the bird looks beautiful awash in sun's golden glow, the plumage details are wonderful and the reflection really adds to the beauty of the composition.

Hello Omer !
Such a splendid picture ! The reflection on the water is absolutely perfect, like a mirror, and the bird in itself is gorgeous, I specially like the yellow circle around its eye. Excellent sharpness and details, nica natural colors, splendid composition and POV, and the blue water makes a wonderful BG and makes the bird stand out so nicely. Very well done !

Dear Omer,
Its just too good. I am unable to differentiate which side is real ;) TFS

Nefis bir fotoğraf. Bu sanırım halkalı aça cılıbıt. Bu kadar yakından ve detayları iyi olarak yakalayamadım bu kuşu. Çok güzel. Sevgiler.

Excelente conjunto por el buen tratamiento de la luz y los colores.
A ver si publicas más fotografías Omer, que lo haces muy bien pero con muy poca frecuencia :-)
