Nice capture, His face is much more handsome than the Turkey Vultures that hang out in my yard.

Looking at a vulture tells me a rotting carcass isn't far away. Nice shot!

JM, That is the best looking vulture ever. Much handsomer than our Turkey vultures.
Safe journey to you Sir!

I agree that he is more handsome than ours in the States. Looks like he knows it also.:)

Must be amazing to see that bird in its natural habitat. I only saw it in the zoo.
