Hi Gianfranco

This is an ugly bird, but what a fine shot. The details are very clear and sharp. Looks great against the nicely OOF BG. Well done! TFS.

HI Gianfranco,
This is razorsharp, what a beautiful image. The pose & composition are very nice, the little morsel in the beak adds a lot of charecter.The details of feathers & bill are lovely.

What a great POV of this vulture, Gianfranco,
I like its outstretched neck and its curious stare.
The details are extremely sharp and well exposed in general
(there is a slight touch of OE on the white collar feathers).
Wonderful DOF and composition.

Fantastica! Che definizione, si posso contare i 'peli' della testa!

Hello Gianfranco.
A note describing the species in more detail, or where/how you got the shot would be a huge +
