[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Turkey vulture

The Turkey Vulture is one of North America's largest birds of prey. It reaches a length of 32 inches with a wing span of 6 feet. Its overall color is brown-black with a featherless, red head, white bill and yellow feet among mature adults. Immature birds have a darker face. Although usually silent, the bird will occasionally emit a soft hiss or groan.

Vultures are best known for their practice of feeding on dead animal carcasses, but will occasionally attack young and helpless animals as well. They obtain much of their water from the moisture in carrion, and their powerful kidneys enable them to excrete less water when expelling waste products.

I taken this shot near beautiful Smith Mountain Lake. Handheld, tracking the bird with manual focus.

12 photos and 4 criticism... would be good that you participated actively in the site by its growth.

WOW, this is a very beautiful photo! great DOF. it looks like you pasted the vulture onto the background! and thanks for the informative note!

It's an excellent picture. It's clear that the EOS300D is vastly superior to compact digitals like mine. I wish I could afford one.
Keep posting, doesn't matter if you don't like the points game, we love viewing your work, cheers.
