very nice composition, try to brighten the pic a little, the sky is too dark. TFS Ori

Hi Rick, Wonderful capture of this Turkey Vulture roosted on a dried trunk with excellent details and sharpness my friend. Its facial expession which you captured here lovely:).

In this image it is playing the game "I am Not Ugly":-) I suppose all things in nature have a beauty which perhaps only other natural things can see or feel...vultures....so symbolic..and always in ways associated with the passing of another animal or God forbid a human..although in some small way they can be a detector for us in their circling above....Very nice image of one at rest..perhaps content for some reason we wish not to know!

Great photo of this Turkey Vulture. The contrasting colours against the blue BG are very beautiful. A pity are the branches above his head, but that's nature.
Excellent sharpness and POV.

Hi Rick. What a fine capture of the amazing looking bird. It has a small face for its size, Good detail and colours. I should love to see such a bird one day. well done TFs.
Ps Just had a look at the work shop fantastic with all nine.
Be careful. A blackberry vine reached out and grabbed my husband last summer and he fell forward tearing his hamstring! Some vines can be nasty.
This is a nice shot. I'm impressed with the size of his feet. It is nice that he is isolated against a clear blue sky.

I've only seen them fly, and once right over our heads. But this is great, being close to them, on their roosting tree. They are majectic birds even though they are "vultures" and it shows on your picture. the notes are great as well, dear Rick, thank you!

interessanti entrambe le immagini che mostrano i rapaci riuniti in "roost", ottima la composizione con l'uccello fra i rami e BG azzurro del cielo, molto buona la definizione dei dettagli dell'occhio e del piumaggio, belli e contrastati i colori.
