[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
A close up of a giant Aegypius. Mainly survive in the highland area, feeding on birds, rabbit, goats, and animals that survive the extreme weather and topography of highland or mountain.

Face extinction if not protected wisely. Unlike Giant Panda, this vulture do not have attractive features such as wonderful colors or cute out look to squeez a place in commercial sector. Anyway hope to remind all TN member to preserve and conserve all living creatures.

This site do provide more of the info on this vulture.

Hi Kean I am suprised no one has critiqued this image. Apart from the over-exposed space above his head, I think this is good. It is a pity it hides teh feathers on his head, but the rest of him looks not too bad. What a great looking fellow - a giant Aegypius. And what a large beak too.
Thanks for sharing
Janice
