Hello Jose,
What an eye catching photo of the Cinereous Vulture while inflight. Nicely composed in a diagonal line which reaches across the frame from top to bottom. Excellent detail and rich chocolate colors. Excellent eye contact with a bit of catchlight visible.

Hello Jose,
Indeed a very big bird with amazing wingspan....Details, colors and focus as always excellent.
