Excellent photo of this Vulture. In a couple of days I set a Hooded Vulture, because I love vultures too. The light, colours and sharpness are amazing. Impressive eye.
Very good composition and OOF BG.

You are lucky photographer because of you can to watch these birds in a wild. Simply amazing picture with plenty attractive details of the bird. Every feather of the bird and every details of the old tree are reproduced precisely as ell as the colour and light tones. BG is very nice too and all together they create a fine composition and scene. MY best regards and compliments.

Selam Selen Hanım,
Kuşlar içinde benim de en çok ilgimi çeken tür. Duruşuyla, kelsi baş ile ilginç bir güzel:). Elinize sağlık.

Good photograph of an american vulture; it has a very major role in the ecosystem. Well said by someone that "A Sky Without Vultures Points to Ecosystem in Peril". In particular it is very much applicable to Indian airspace. Thanks for highlighting this creature.

merhaba Selen hanım,
birkaç gün netten ve siteden uzak kalmıştım. nefis çekiminizi ancak görebiliyorum. elinize sağlık, son derece güzel. netlik ve uçuşan küçük böceklere kadar bütün detaylar harika çıkmış. açısı, göz teması da kadraj gibi çok güzel. sağlıcakla kalın, iyi geceler.

Merhaba Selen hanım muhteşem bir kare olmuş keyifle izledim ellerinize sağlık.
superb shot of this Black Vulture.
Are they flies around it?
Excellent sharpness and clarity.
Outstanding shot of this Vulture with very imprassive sharpness and details on its plumage. Fabulous pose captured but I wonder what those tiny dots are - hovering flies? Great lighting, POV and DOF.

Wondeful picture of this vulture! I really like the insectes surrounding it like the dust surrounding the little boy in Peanuts (you know, the friend of Charlie Brown) ;-)
The image is greatly sharp with a great management of the exposition on all those blacks!
Great green bg too! Personally I would have removed (cloned) the dark trunk behind the vulture in the upper portion of the picture.
Great job and TFS!

I know what you mean when you say vultures are beautiful, I think so too, they have such intelligent eyes. Lovely sharp details and nicely composed. DOF and POV are both very good
