Default Vulture

Hi,

I already saw many bird pics form you all and wanted to share one of myself also. This is a vulture that was pretty close to me.

E-500, [email protected] F4.5 ISO100

WOW! I guess he was! Is that an Egyptian vulture? While not the prettiest of birds, their body and wing feathers are beautiful and they are sure more handsome than our Turkey vultures! Go job, Lordje!

I have no clue what kind of type it is. Not the type of bird I see often here, lucky for me he was not that hungry . Thank you Gary!!!!

He is a very beautiful bird. Must have had a handler or was rescued, note the ties on his claws. may be a juvenile. You have a great shot there. Yeah, in CA we have turkey vultures which are huge with red heads...and a huge wingspan. I was on a small motorcycle going down a country road and two had a dead raccoon. One spread his wings and it covered my side of the road.
I decided he could Have that side and road WAY over on the other side. It would have made a big mess had I hit it.
Oh, he wouldn't have eaten ya until you had been dead awhile...got to smell just right.

Nice looking vulture. I like the feathers and color. What parts of the country they are in or is this imported ?

Excellent capture Lordje. Well done. That vulture is actually a better looking species than most vultures.
