Hello Ivo,

Interesting shot, we can see that the griffon looks really big and i surprised and happy to know that we have such a big bird in Europe. TFS.


Hello Evo,
Whew! Look at those talons on that magnificant looking bird. An amazing shot, I really like the washed out background, it's a great effect, bring out the vulture with very nice detail. :)
