[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Egyptian vultures (Nephron percnopterus) are summer visitors to Turkey. They breed in suitable habitats in Turkey and migrate back to Africa in autumns. This young one was shot in Beypazari district, Central Anatolia together with my photo partner Akif Aykurt "raptorman".

This one was rather curious and approached the strange two-legged observers too much!.. This time it was OK. However, it may not be a lucky situation in other occasions!..

Hello cem,
Fine sharp, in-flight shot of a juvenile Egyptian Vulture with pleasing blue sky BG.
Pity you couldn't show the wing tips as well, but it's a fine post.
Regards, Ivan

Hi Cem,
You have captured the Egyptian Vulture so close with a 300 mm focal length, which is great! You were really lucky. For me it's a very good, detailed and a precious shot. Bravo and TFS
