[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note [French]
This photo was made ​​outside of the Eagle Park Rocamadour. This vulture came to rest a few meters from the location where I was.

The term vulture is a common name designating certain hawks birds present on almost every continent. Vultures are scavengers that feed primarily on animal carcasses and as such occupy an ecological niche critical to the health of all other animals, as well as that of man. The term should not be confused with that of around designating other raptors.

Bonjour Serge,
Un vautour impressionnant au regard peu tendre. Un cadrage particulier aussi qui divise l'image en deux par la coloration. Il faudrait peut-être mentionner que cette image a été (probablement) faite au zoo de Rocamadour. Ceci fait partie des règles de TN.
Bonne journée

Hello Serge,
Nice portrait of this Rüppell's Vulture in an impressive pose. The sharpness is not total, but a good focus on the head. Taken from a pleasing POV with eye contact.

Hello Serge
Impressive bird and impressive portrait!

No se si es el formato original o la fotografía está recortada pero es lo mismo,
conseguiste un efecto estupendo al acaptar al ave en esa postura. Buen enfoque y
bellos colores naturales.
Buen fin de semana Serge.
