    Lovely capture and presentation Ludwig,

    It has look reminiscent of the (legal profession) ceremonial/barrister wigs worn over here.

    Chuckles at Dave's comment about barristers and wigs, I can see the resemblance. Nice image, Ludwig.

    Love the image....but it really is not a very pretty bird is it. Having said that...I would love to have the chance to capture one. You have done a nice job with the exposure and details here.

    Thank you Dave, Joe, Paul. When I looked at the photos of these birds, I, too, thought "British, barrister". I was quite lucky, this vulture even stood still while I moved around it to get a good background. For a bit more on this, please see "The Weekly Photo (Week 23) - Vultureshttp://cafeludwig.blogspot.com/2012/...-vultures.html".
