You fooled me with the geographic location....
I thought you had a sensation going on here with a Griffon Vulture in Bristol..... ;o) But your note corrected it.
Besides that is this a great action photo. I love those! Great details and an interesting BG, did you have to climb very high to get this angle?
You also wrote an interesting note. 5 points for that!

lovely capture and the compositin is just right, pity there was'nt a stronger contrast between the bird and the rock, or maybe a shallower dof to isolate it. but saying that i think it works fine.

Haven't I seen you somewhere before? ;)
Whereabouts in Crete are these Ade? Its a big place but I've been there twice and if I go again hot tips for good sites are always handy! Off to Rodos again in 2 weeks times, can't wait! Whats it like lugging the bigma abroad? I don't really fancy taking mine, probably go with just a macro.
Good shot btw, couldn't have been easy at a distance, and not something you see everyday thats for sure!

Nice picture of this Griffon Vulture. Obviously taken at long distance but still nice and sharp. I dont think you would have been able to lessen the depth of field with the 50-500mm lens which might have made the background less obtrusive. Difficult shot to take and you have done well here.

Nicely done Mate. The heads, with their downy covering, always make the head and neck look soft but in the full size version I know you can see the eyeballs!

Lol, Bristol? Nice colours in the cliff that set the bird off really well, and what an impressive bird.
