Nice to see this bird close to. Your shot is sharp but a bit noisy. Perhaps you cropped it a lot.
TFS, regards, Ivan
This lovely bird is not so often on TN. Thanks for sharing.
I have seen these birds in the Himalayas/Tibet; soaring high with thermals even at an altitude 18,000 feet above sea level. Amazing birds !
