Ungraceful Yet Magnificient by In-the-picture Ungraceful Yet Magnificient by In-the-picture
:wow: I was thrilled to get this shot :boogie:
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 :confused:
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

Terrific capture, and I think vultures only look ungainly, they are actually beautiful flyers. Thank you for posting this wonderful image, along with your commentary!

Thanks I was amazed to get it - all bird displays finish this weekend so will have to find something else to shoot.

My new lensbaby came today so am going to try something different, looks rather funky and a bit complicated may take a while!

Find it easier to put new devs on than sort through all the messages :giggle:

I know, yet if I don`t put them on I won`t feel the need to take more :giggle: When worse weather hits I`ll be indoors and can sort out the hundreds of photos I`ve taken and catch up on messages at same time :D
Glad you are enjoying my work - shrooms will be hitting your inbox soon - finally got the Fly Agaric after three years of trying!

The red mushroom with the white spots on - the one usually shown in fairy pictures, if I had sorted the shots out I could`ve put link :doh:
