I live in Pretoria South Africa and I am a serious amateur photographer with a passion for birds and animals. Birds are my main subjects as I have various birding locations in and around my area. When I get the chance to get to the National parks, I include as many animals that cross my path.

Always thought vultures were ugly, but this one has beautiful colors. And they are very necessary. Good capture.

Great shot Stu but not a creature I’d like to meet face to face.

Superb image, Stu. You certainly captured a perfect moment and made this impressive creature look almost elegant! I actually think vultures are pretty cool. :)

You can “label” such avian perfection as “creepy” or “scary” if you want but I have to admit I am disappointed with the persons who made the above comments.

I love vultures,I painted one once but so one bought the picture; maybe it was too self indulgent. This is a nice shot, thanks for sharing.
