Fantastic moment in flight. Well done. Greetings, Eugene

Very nice frozen in-flight capture Hans. Excellent sharpness, very nice colours and very clever handling of the light not to burn the white plumage - or almost not;-). Nice colours on the bird and plenty of details in the plumage.

Beautiful in-flight photo, Hans. Also an interesting bird. Good details and composition. TFS.

Great in-flight shot Hans. Very sharp even with the 2X adaptor. Good contrast against the blue sky.

Hans, this is a beautiful shot of this vulture. I have seen them in flight and could not believe how big they are. The sharpness and lighting is excellent.

Very well done and thanks for posting

Very good action shot, it could be good to ajust highlights and shadows to get back more details.
Well done.

White feathers are always evry hard to catch decently but you managed to do just that.
