No apologies for yet another photograph of the Lappet- faced Vulture, it just seems to have a character of it's own.

Hi David,
You got an incredible action shot here!
Excellent POV used to capture this moment.
You got a really good and sharp details, despite the distance that -we supouse- you were from the bird.
It's amazing for me the way the feets are extended and the tension on it for the inminent landing.
Congratulations for the shot, thanks for share it with us and my best regards,

Its a great shot.. The motion is dynamic and the subject well framed. Just a thought though.. maybe your background should be a touch more colourful.

Hi David,
Impecable timing of this interesting looking bird. Composition is strong with your exposure giveing enough detail in the sky to make the image hang together well.

Wow, you captured a nice moment. It seems almost a little flat-footed, lock-kneed and clumsy! I know these are not nimble on land. I love the arched wings with individual feathers at the wing tip.

Perfect focus, beautiful timing. DOF is a little shallow as the tail feathers are OOF, but who's complaining! I agree, it would be slightly nicer to have a less gray sky, but ... Thanks for the wonderful shot.

Perfect !!!

Hi David

Awesome in-flight shot. Love the composition. Great details you show here. :-)

Hello David,
This is an amazing shot. Details, composition, POV and exposure are perfect! This is a stunning picture! Did you used a monopod or tripod or was it handheld? Which shutter speed you used? Well done!
