[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
this picture was one of the more then 1000 pictures I took from these birds. 'Vale gier' in dutch, I leave the translation to others.
It was taken in the Verdon, france, on the 'route des cretes'. The birds were reintroduced some years ago, and are now with about 25.
They flew around in the morning and evening, but taking a sharp shot with a 300 mm, out of the free hand, and while the are flying was really a matter of trying and retrying...

Very impressive bird, good reason to take more than 1000 pictures of it!! I am curious to see more from this bird.

Very nice photo and point of view.

Well done!

Très belle image d'un vautour fauve. Cela me rappele de bons souvenirs dans les Causses Lozériens où durant les années 70 on réintroduisait cet espèce sur les Causses.

Merci auteur.

Merci Marcel de nous présenter une image si belle et intéressante point de vue technique, mais aussi du côté «information» sur cet oiseau qui était sans doute en voie de disparition dans cette région.
Votre patience et persévérance sont récompensées. Bravo.

Cette photo est formidable, Marcel. Le vautour est magnifique. Excellent in-flight shot with amazingly sharp details and great exposure. Well done and TFS. : )

Hey Marcel,

Stunning !!! Well done on this shot. I know how special this must have been for you. I will look for more from you

Very good timing, details and colour.

Hello Marcel

Great work. Excellent low POV. Nice exposure and detail. Great coloured background. Well done. Thanks.

Hello Marcel
Incredible picture of a white vulture. Like you said, it has to be many to get a good one.
This one is excellent.
Really good detail and the angle of the take is the right one.
