Beautiful Vulture.

By jove
A change from my holiday snaps.
Looking through my files I came across this chap, I captured these images on a day out just before last Christmas at Chester Zoo.
He was sitting rather majestic on a tree top looking rather stunning for a Vulture.
I must admit I did not think Vultures could look so beautiful.
I hope you agree.
These shots were took through a chain link fence, i think it's really good that the lens looks through and beyond the fence, I am glad it can.
Large version is worth a look.
Thanks for looking.

I know a lot of people think they are ugly birds,but when you watch one in flight,they are incomparable.
