What an awesome shot of these haggling vultures.
+++ Amazing image quality: Veeeery sharp and detailed, perfectly blurred BG with not one speck of noise. The lighting is quite grey which works perfectly for an evil atmosphere which these birds often bring across.
Great low-down POV works very well and a decent composition. Very well taken.

A great photo. Even with the lens they must have let you get quite close. The POV makes the photo.

A great opportunity that resulted in an even greater image! A real wildlife picture! It seems the wait was worth it as you were able to create this beautiful composition. The colors look natural and the contrast is very good. I think it was kind of cloudy as the shadows are soft and don't hide any details. Very good exposure! Thank you for sharing!

It is an excellent composition to get four of them feeding on the sheep. Well frozen action with sharp detail as they feed here. Nice soft light and good colors in the plumage. Well done!

This is very unique photo, especially if we note that it was taken in Europe not in Africa! Vultures are rather rare bird species and not easy to observe on our continent. And here we can see a few individuals of this great species, and moreover in very special moment.
I like the composition (really African character!), great DOF and details. I believe that it was a pleasure to observe such situation in the wild, but even watching the picture is a fantastic experience :)
TFS and my best regards,

This is a great photo depicting survival for these vultures. Photo has sharp focus, excellent comp and exposure, nice BG bokeh and good natural colors. BTW, how far away were you from the action, and did you use a T-con? TFS
