Oooh, he is pretty scary looking - as you say, such a contrast to what is beyond. Great capture, Alun.

Something different,something fun.Another place on my visit list.
Happy coincidence maybe but a great result, the bird is very angry indeed. I'd be keeping well away from these talons. Great image.

Thanks for your response to this bit of fun. Huge thanks to Wolfy for his award - really chuffed with that!
Shaun - I was very impressed with the ICBP at Newent. It seemed to be a very well run place with excellent care taken of the birds. Came away with some nice snaps.
Chris and Dougie - It's at times like these that a 100-400mm just doesn't feel long enough!
Henrique - It certainly seemed to be issuing a challenge and really made for a dramatic entrance to the flying field!
Wolfy - Many thanks my friend. I think the gate may be slightly off level Wink

No probs Alun, its a superb timed shot indeed! Btw the gates fine but I think the Vulture's right wing is slightly off? Maybe just me its hard to tell Wink Tongue
