Gypaetus barbatus - Sakalli Akbaba
You do not have to apologize for anything as this great image of the Bearded Vulture makes up for your absence and fills the void in a flash. This is really a striking bird of prey and seeing it in flight more the better and prettier. I just love the soft orange colour on its belly, the sharp beak and the remarkable wide opened wingspan is just so beautiful. This must surely have been an incredible sight and great experience to capture it so skilfully in flight. Thanks for sharing and welcome back.

Günaydin Ahmet Dostum!
I never tire of seeing images of Gypaetus barbatus, Sakalli Akbaba, especially when it is well taken like this fine in-flight of a young adult.
Sounds like you had a great trip to the mountains!
Well done my friend and have a good weekend,

Very nice to see you again after your trip. Beautiful photo of this Bearded Vulture in flight. Good sharpness, details and natural colours. Excellent composition. Indeed it must be fascinating to see this vulture so close.
welcome back; fantastic capture of this splendid bird of prey, good sharpness and very beautiful natural colours, excellent POV and composition with a classic posture of this bird in-flight.
Hocam özletmiştiniz bu kareleri,
Çok güzel bir tür niğdeden olması beni çok mutlu etti,
Sınavlardan hemen sonra 2 kafadar karagöle gitmeyi düşünüyoruz.
Birkaç arkadaş daha kandırıp maliyeti biraz düşürdük.
Çevre orman müdürlüğünden yol haritası taleb edeceğiz.
Şimdiden arazi heyecanı sardı beni dilerim böyle birkaç sürprizde bize denk gelir.
En güzel dileklerimle hoşcakalın.
