That is a seriously large bird. Do you happen to know what it is?

Chris, that's a pretty good shot from 100m! It looks to be some sort of eagle but you are in France so I don't really know - my knowledge is mainly limited to North American birds. I'd be interested in the bird id when you can get it.

Thanks for posting!

Eagle is also what I would guess. That looks to me like its getting into the 6-foot wing span on a rapter. Not many birds are that big.

That looks like a similar size to a Turkey Vulture where I live. It clearly isn't one, but that is another matter.

Nicely done, good picture.

I taped it to the end of my Bigma and it worked fine. Then I used a roll of duct tape on the end of the Sigma, and pushed the lens into it with the FZ10 lens hood taped to the end. It fit perfectly and could be taken off and put on in seconds.

Conclusion: tape works fine

Thanks for the id info, Chris. In English, your bird's wingspan (distance from tip of wing to tip of wing when flying) would be 54 to 62 inches - I think I got the math about right...
