[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
The Griffon vulture (Gyps fulvus): A fantastic flyer. In short time they appear and disappear again in the sky and fly by in astonishing speed.
Often they are too fare away. Sometimes they are too near!

Hello Pierre,
A wonderful inflight shot of this beautiful Griffon Vulture. The focus is sharp showing us its plumage and body features in excellent detail. I like the intense look it has on its face.
