Hello Pierre,
Fantastic photo of this Lappetfaced Vulture. Great clarity and beautiful colours. Excellent shaprness, details and a very good POV and composition. Splendid blue sky in the BG.

Hello Pierre
Congratulations for the beautiful pictures, great natural colors, good POV and sharpness.
Thanks for sharing.
Hello Vanni

Hallo Pierre
A great capture of this brightly coloured Lappet faced vulture. A good approach, showing clear and sharp details on the eye, the facial features and the lovely feathers in the neckline. Great in sharpness, lighting and composition. The blue sky as backdrop is so beautiful and highlights the details of this bird of prey to its best. A well deserved 10/10 in my opinion. Thanks for sharing. Best regards.

Hi Pierre,
Splendid photo of this Vulture, TFS!

Hi Pierre,
absolutely fantastic shot! Amazing eye contact, exceptional sharpness and details, good colors, great POV!
The BG is also very good, homogeneous, emphasizing the subject.

Great Shot Pierre, I never had the chance to get this ones and I hope I can one day.
