Good morGrinning....back home after a GrinGringreat few days at the Game lodge.
Thank you for your votes and comments over this time and apologies for my lack of voting due to a very slow internet connection at the Lodge.
We came across a kill that had been left by the two male lions lying in long grass. There were abot a dozen vultures already eating and lots more circling in the sky....this is one of them coming in to land.
Have a nice day

V1 superb image and very well captured, V2 well captured but I can see some chroma noise in the dark plumage on my monitor, may be worth trying a noise reduction filter but you may have avoided this so as not to loose detail. Both convey a sense of the size and power of these amazing birds.

Most of the vultures round our way have no wings but rather long legs and walk upright.................GrinGrinGrinGrinGrinGrinGrin
