Great capture through glass Pieter,
The details are superb, very clean and clear.
Did you use a filter for this shot, to reduce the reflection of the glass?
Thanks for posting
Well done on this capture through glass. The composition is good however you have some white "hot spots" Not sure of the true color of this bird but the cyans are high.
I tried a workshop for you.

Hi Pieter, very good work the exposure is great and the details are terrific, my only nit is that the head would look better against a clearer background. Very good work.

What a beak! Good details, pose and composition. As Paul mentioned, pity about BG. I like colour - white vulture.

Nice portrait, Pieter. The details shows well. It's very sharp, not easy through glass. The tip of the tail sticking out above the beak is a bit distracting but it's still a great capture.
Goed gedaan, vriend.
Pieter, believe me: I'm fascinated about these birds, and you did a great job here.
First of all, what grabs my attention is the fact you used 1/30. I wouldn't get such a good sharpness and focus by using it, since it seems you didn't use a tripod.
Beautiful composition, DOF, POV and note.
Pragtige aasvoël, a beutiful eye, good plumage.
I did a little WS for you. If you do not want me to give you proper crituques just say so, and I will stop.
The WS explains much better than I can of how you could turn this into somethig even better.

A very beautiful POV of this magnificent bird. This oen would be great to make a mask and replace the bricks of BG by a nice landscape. I like the whites palettes you captured. TFP.

Personal assessment of the photo: great.
Good visual impact.
Aptness of the photo for the site: excellent.
Personal assessment of the note: great.
Oh! I wish to make a WS but I saw Callie already did one. I learned a lot by WS like this, Pieter.
Thanks for sharing.

I see you've been back to the zoo, Pieter! Great capture, especially through glass. I am amazed at that brown eye, looks almost human.

Nice shot! Great sharpness and details. Thw reflections in the eye makes the bird look lively.
