Griffon Vulture

By brian1208
Digging through some images from a recent Hawk Conservancy Trust visit I found a couple of portraits I had shot which I thought to share to see if you like them as much as I do.

I think this shot of the Griffon Vulture reflects the majestic stature of these remarkable birds and the Bald Eagle shot is one of the finest I have been able to get of this often photographed icon

Over to you for your reactions
