Gret shot Ricardo. The picture has great clarity. The colors on the vulture are amazing, the red around the eyes and on the end of the beak.

Hi Ricardo,
The look of this animal is terrifying and funny ! The tilted look is adding some funny weirdness to the attitude.
The lighting is nice and the contrast between the red and the black is perfectly managed.
Bravo !

Hey Ricardo,

What a fabulous shot. You've done a wonderful job here. I love your DOF. The blurred background really does make the bird stand out so well. Color is excellent as is sharpness. Well done

Great portrait of this ugly bird, Ricardo.
Very nice colours, well composes, good POV and details.
You did a very good work.
