Hello Jose,
Talk about a bad hair day:} What a great close-up shot of this Cinereous Vulture. Tac sharp focus showing excellent detail. The wind certainly made the feathers stand up in an interesting manner. Love the facial expression as well as it's ruffled features. The bluish gray colors on part of it's bill are very pretty. Well done!!
