Hi Akif. You must be flying with this bird , you have such a good POV. Fantastic view of the wings with good detail in the feathers and natural looking colour. well done TFS.

Hi Akif,

This picture is absolutely perfect. You must have played dead to get such a magnificant shot;-)

All details are pin sharp, BG is pleasantly blurred, good composition, POV from above, very good natural colours.

Great work!

Hello Akif,
This is really wonderful. Perfect POV from above! Excellent sharp-focused Vulture in flight. The detailed patterns in the feathers are great. Very beautiful natural colours, also in the OOF BG. High quality!
