Had a photo walk with Mike and Emily yesterday and as always, had a great time! One of the stops was at Cap Sante Park in Anacortes and this bad boy was flying around near the bottom of a cliff. Really wish the foliage was out of the way but, after looking the image over and over I feel it somewhat adds a nice little something!
About my bird comment yesterday, birds just don’t like me! They usually fly off when I get near them…no idea why, they just do! As noted yesterday, I am going to be working this summer on getting more wild bird shots and personally, I think this is a great way to start off! Enjoy…
A great way to fly.. Mode and Mood spot on, great framing work!
I like it. It holds my intrest. Turkey Vultures are nasty looking birds, but this is an interesting photo!
They are rather nasty eh! I love the look in the wings but man, the head…blech! 😛
It’s interesting…this photo almost looks like a reflection of a bird than an actual live shot. I’m glad you got one, though! Yay!
Due to the foliage? I can see it. Thank you for the comment.
It’s a good shot – but I don’t think I would want to see a vulture staring at me that way…
Hahaha, I am getting used to birds looking at me funny! It’s a bird conspiracy I tell ya! 😛
Great capture David! I too like the foliage, I think it adds to the image.
The foliage does add a certain motion feel doesn’t it? Thank you for the comment Jim.
I like the foliage effect. It’s quite amazing actually.
Thank you. 😀
Lovely shot of the vulture in flight. I like the aqua background and DOF on the foliage.
Thank you Sasi, to be honest, I was rather surprised to see him!
Wow David… looks like the birds are starting to warm up to you. This is an amazing capture of the vulture! Fantastic details of the feathers and I love the way he looks at you. I think the foliage adds interesting composition and the motion of flight to the image. Well done! 🙂
Thank you Emily for the wonderful comment!
