Photo taken during an eagle flying show in Tenerife, Spain. I was impressed how they have shown their capacities flying, and returned to their house. All were free, not in cages.

Great picture Guilherme - such beautiful colour and detail, the light is glorious. Do you know what this is? It looks more like a vulture of some sort to me?

Hello Guilherme,
Very good capture.
Had the same kind of contact as you did:).
I love your pic very much!
TFS and congrats

Hello Guilherme,
Great sharpness with excellent details.
I like the point of view and the orange bordered eyes.
Regards, FABIAN

interesting looking bird taken at an interesting POV. The colors are really nice and bright. It looks like it's got a fur coat over it. I agree with lizbrown, looks like a vulture. i have a picture on a bird somewhat like yours, but i haven't posted it up yet.
Thanks for sharing.

fantastic portrait, thanks Ori

A warm welcome to TN, Guilherme.
Excellent POV of this king vulture (Sarcoramphus papa).
The turn of the head and the light on it make it very interesting.
Sharp details and beautiful colors.
TFS. : )

Hi Guilherme

Wonderful shot of the King Vulture, they are really amazing looking Birds and you have captured the pose of this one superbly, nice sharp detail and wonderful colours too.

TFS Hilary :o)

Hi Guilherme

Welcome to TN.

High quality shot. Beautiful colour tones and perfect composition. Thank you! :-)

Hi Guilherme,
Wonderful portrait! The colours and contrast are beautiful. Nice dark background as well. But I think the best part of this shot is the brilliant white eye! It really captures the viewers attention. Well done! And thanks for visiting my gallery. I hope to see more of your shots in the future.

As well poited out by others too it is KING VULTURE, not an eagle. Its head and neck are bald, with the skin color varying, including yellow, orange, blue, purple, and red. The King Vulture has a very noticeable yellow fleshy carnucle on its beak.Request amend your photographer's note to vulture from eagle please.
