[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Managed to shoot this rare bird - Egyptian vulture (Neophron percnopterus) - very early in the morning, with the rising sun almost direclty behind the bird, which created in this case a nice backlighting effect. I hope you like it.

Hi Ivo.
Amazing light, wonderful image and exposure. I love the way you have captured him having a glimps back at you and the lighting effect around him, superb detail.


Very good light, Ivo.
Good work

That's a very interesting bird. I like your background in this shot. It's very much the right shade to enhance the soft brownish feathers. You're right about the lighting as well. Nice capture!

Your use of the counterlight in the head feather is a must see.
