Hello Ivo,
Must be a good vulture resto:-)

This is a fantastic capture, showing a pile of vultures feeding on some carcass. Excellent use of slanting slight to highlight the birds and give each one a distinct identity in the crowd. The one on top has been captured in superb landing action.
Well done, Ivo, and thanks for sharing this quality image.

Hi Ivo, very nice capture of this action. I like especially how you have captured the one vulture, not quite touching the carcas. It's a little dark maybe, but this might be totally natural. It doesn't really hurt it, just an observation on my part. The clarity is good, the composition is excellent.

Thanks, John

Really nice shot.
Very nice animal. I want to distribution in Romania to...:D
