I was thrilled to get this shot
I love vultures so magnificent whilst flying yet so many don`t like them, they are necessary to clear away carcases before disease runs rife Rüppell's Vulture is considered to be the world's highest-flying bird, with confirmed evidence of a flight at an altitude of 11,000 metres (36,100 ft) above sea level.
Rüppells Griffon Vulture IUCN Red List Conservation status - Near Threatened
