Aerial display

By Gray_ina
We were standing on a bridge photographing a different bird when this Cape Vulture swooped over our heads - I'm always amazed at their ability to ride the thermals so easily and managed to grab a few shots before it dissapeared into a dizzy height - hope you like it - gray

Well timed with good detail - especially on the eye difficult to get with such a dark head - like the spread of the primary feathers like fingers on a very big hand Wink - Ina

very nice Gray. I love the fact you have got the primary and Secondary feathers so sharp. Looking closer you can see the lips of the bird. Well done - luke
