where vultures dare

By bargee
I only have put this up for it's rarity value. The big bird is a Bearded Vulture taken from the Schilthorn in Switzerland at the limit of my telephoto lens. There are only 4 pairs of these birds in the Alps. It was constantly being mobbed by eagles. It never flapped it's wings in the half hour that I was watching - it just sat on the thermals.

nice! Maybe I'd have cropped a little bit more around the voltures.
