Hi Yoram,
This is very impressive!
Almost incredible the pose catched of this vulture in its final approach.
Just look at the feathers on the extended wings, it couldn't be any better.
Your focus is spot on, to make this a remarkable picture.
Congratulations and thanks for share it.
My best regards,

Amazing pose, Yoram.
Very dynamic stance with that neck stretched low, the talons splayed, the wings wide open. Wow.
Fantastic POV, good light, sharp details.

Impressive photo. I think this isn't easy to make. Just the wright pose. And everything is very sharp. Wonderful composition. Beautiful light. Your name in the photo is for me a bit disturbing.
