The King & The Judge

By SteveMoulding    
Another pair of Vultures, this time the colourful 'King Vulture' and the stately 'Hooded Vulture'. Again, not birds that most people will appreciate as being photogenic but to me are beautiful in their own right and play an important roll in the habitat in which they live. Again I hope I have done them justice.
Many thanks for all your C&C's and 'Get Well' wishes. Also a special thankyou to Christine (ChristineD) and Steve (sparrowhawk) for their recent UA's, they are very much appreciated.

Best viewed large if you have time.

Steve
