Abutre-preto, Cinereous vulture

(Aegypius monachus)

Hi TN Friends! This week I've been for some holidays at the Monfrague Natural Park. Great place to visit in spring.
This pic of the black vulture was made from a hide. Beautiful morning.

The black vulture is the bigger bird in the Iberian skies.

Have a good weekend and thanks for viewing.

Hello Jose,
What a neat close-up shot of this Black Vulture. Looks like it was photographed in the early or late evening light when the sky produces that warm golden light. Your 1/500 shutter froze the wing motion and allows us to view its facial features in wonderful detail.

Ciao Jose, great capture of fantastic black vulture, fine details, wonderful natural colors and splendid sharpness, very well done, my friend, ciao Silvio

Great picture. I love it :)

Very good shot. The details are extremely clear and the early morning ligght hs not caused too much loss of true coloration.
