|The White-backed Vulture, Gyps africanus, is an Old World vulture in the family Accipitridae, which also includes eagles, kites, buzzards and hawks. It is closely related to the European Griffon Vulture, G. fulvus. Sometimes it is called African White-backed Vulture to distinguish it from the Oriental White-backed Vulture – nowadays usually called Indian White-rumped Vulture – to which it was formerly believed to be closely related (wiki)|

great species. i like the pose of this bird.
p.s. you should crop more from the top
Very good capture of the White-backed Vulture, natural colours of Africa.
Great moody shot of this scavenger. Good composition. Great sharpness. Sombre tones. Good DOF and POV.
