[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
As I've already written here on TrekNature, in a previous post of mine, I enjoy these birds.

This photo was taken when I was already satisfied enough with the pictures I had taken. I had gone to the countryside, in a place called "Usina" (Mill), in order to shoot. Once, there was a sugar mill there. Now, according to what I was told, what we call "Hotel-Fazenda" (a kind of hotel in the countryside) will be built there.

When I was coming back, I saw, by the road, some vultures landed on this tree. I told my girlfriend to stop the car and, little by little, I got close to them. Indeed, I could be very close; they didn't fly away. The only nit is the fact the tree was a big one, and they were fairly high. I could take about ten shots. When I thought about the possibility of climbing the tree, the vultures seemed to have read my mind and went away.

Livio, Very good sharpness & details seen in your "skulking" pair..They seem to be aware of your presence? Great blue sky BG..Well done!
