On a perch
|[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note|
|Whitebacked Vultures (Gyps africanus) if seen from above or banking steeply in flight, has a lower white back in contrast with dark upperwings. Its habitat is open savana parkland.|
I took this picture at the Maholoholo animal rehabilitation centre close to the Kruger National Park in South Africa. These vulture were poisoned by poison put out for predators by a local farmer and were nursed back to health by the centre.

an advice: never, never lie down to get sun!
Beatiful vultures, is it possible? Yes, no doubt, you just proved that.
The diagonal lines are perfect, and the turns of the vultures heads not only add interesting lines but also tell me about these birds, not exactly what I would call unattentive... The colors are also very nice, all brown shades.
Thanks for sharing, and thanks to the rehabilitation centre for saving them..
