Inquisitive bird

By zarquon  
A visit to a bird sanctuary in France ~ I was about to press the shutter release, with the vulture in focus, a nice composition and the camera lens hood pressed firmly against some rather dirty glass... There was little time to focus more accurately as the bird suddenly moved to stand immediately behind the glass. The enclosure was quite dark with a window letting some sunlight in through the roof. This image was created at ISO 800 at f/2.0

A Good shot considering the circumstances! That must have been scary just as well you had the glass between! It's a shame you were unable to get the whole of the beak in!
