[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Hello friends, photo taken yesterday, I have photos
of the Turkey Vulture in-flight, here perched on a
tree it is the first time for me.

1/3200s f/5.6 ISO1000 85mm (35mm eq:127mm).
(There is no 1/3200s in TN's database).


« Behavior
Turkey Vultures are majestic but unsteady soarers.
Their teetering flight with very few wingbeats is characteristic.
Look for them gliding relatively low to the ground,
sniffing for carrion, or else riding thermals up to higher
vantage points. They may soar in small groups and roost
in larger numbers. You may also see them on the ground
in small groups, huddled around roadkill or dumpsters. »

Hi Asbed,this isn't the most elegant bird but you caught it in a very nice pose,a bit distant but the sharpness is absolutely great! Have a nice day and thanks,Luciano

Hello Asbed,
Beautiful photo against such blue sky. Nicely freeze. Like its flying mode.
Thanks and have a nice WE,

Bonjour Asbed,

Les arbres cadrent bien l'oiseau. La prise de vue permet de voir les détails de la Dinde sauvage. La bonne luminosité rehausse les couleurs de l'image. Bonne journée.
