A wingspan of 10 feet, that's massive, if I had to guess he would prefer soaring through the skies...well captured Barbara

I guess if they've never known proper freedom they are content - or do their genes tell them they should be flying high and free!!!

Quote:Pretty impressive to see but to me all the better if in the wild.

I agree. Especially for animals who need lots of room and movement. 10 feet! He's carrion some serious wings, Barbs.

He seems to make a really good tour guide, though.

Very well shot, this, and what a great title Grin

I bet they would prefer to be soaring high, carried on some wind thermals, I would. Moira
Impressive wing span.. Great observation
And to my right is the take off ....when I'm ready but I'm not so i will just spread my wings, in a few shots as you do.

I know some of them need to be protected but I would love to see them in much larger enclosures. We cannot always travel to their natural habit eitherSad Great capture of the huge wingspan.
