Great capture JM.
I can never get close to our Buzzards here.

JM, that's just to much with the wall of the crater in the far distance. So cool. I can almost see the Masai tribesmen...

Superb photograph ... this does not look like any of our buzzards...and I would think his flying over my head would not augur well... :-)

This buzzard looks more like an eagle than a vulture. Maybe this scavenger still hunts. Wild shot!

I guess there must be a lot of wildlife living in that crater. Isn't this a crater that you're only allowed to go into with a guide?
