Heinz - what a 'beauty'!!! The white scarf around his neck is outstanding, but he is very strange looking. A little soft, but it is a good composition, and very interesting to see, thank you

Considering how beautiful they look in the air, they sure are anything but on the ground! Of course being scavengers, the head without feathers is necessary for cleanliness.
Nonetheless, this is a fabuolous character shot: well-composed, perfect lighting, DOF and colour. You are living up to your reputation, it seems.

Wow! Superb shot! It's amazing to see the details of this bird close up. That's incredible that their wingspan is up to 10 feet or more. Good colours and pose. Well seen and captured!

What an amazing looking bird. I have never seen one of these before, so thank you for introducing it to me. We have very endangered California condors here, but they have a gray head and no crest.
You captured this one with perfect focus and exposure. I also like the profile presentation. I certainly would not want to be at the business end of that massive beak.
A very interesting post. TFS. : )

Hello Heinz, very nice portrait. I think a little more room in front of the bird may have been good. The details and colours are great though, well done.

was für ein eindrucksvolles und ausdrucksstarkes portrait des königs der lüfte, heinz! :-)
die details sind wirklich einmalig:
beim erhabenen blick fängt es an, dann sind da die einzelnen
falten der verschiedenen hautlappen, der große schnabel
und der weiße "pelzkragen".
perfect job & alles gute, thorsten.
