local Griffons 2

By PatriciaWilson      
V1 2 images, (not cropped) because I blew the sky:-(
V2 comming in to feed (see yesterdays image) not cropped.
V3 same again.
Unfortunatly I'd tightened the zoom ring and couldn't get it undone fast enough, so a little too zoomed in.

Any crit welcome,
Thanks for looking,

A very compelling image here. I don't know what processing you did but it has worked very well.

Fantastic captures, Patricia. I saw one of these vultures close up in Samaria Gorge. Think he was a little hungry, he had come down to the car park where there was a mobile diner Smile Carol

Thanks Ron, actually Griffon Vultures are wonderfully passive birds. When they've eaten, they move to the outside of the group and stand guard while the next shift feed. There's no fighting or aggression, like crows.
