Photographer's Note

Another picture of sunset in Izmir, taken at the Konak Port. On the post, the mascot of the “23rd Universiade 2005 that was held in Izmir” is seen. The name of the mascot is EFE. This is a bird which takes its Latin name from the city of Izmir: the White breasted Kingfisher (Halcyon Smyrnensis)(Smyrna is the ancient name of Izmir), one of the inhabitants of the Izmir Bird Paradise. The bird's name in Turkish language is Yalıçapkını. Thanks to his ability to live in such varied environments as riversides, land and seashores, he symbolizes energy and dynamism.
