Excellent shot of a strange bird!

Good colors, and good light, very sharp but I think a more open picture would have been better!

Very good portrait of a strange creature. Eyes give a special impact to the image. Very good close framing off center. Something different, well presented.

Interesting portrait of colourful bird.
Nice colours& sharp shot.

Congratulations on an excellent shot of the king vulture. His eyes have a certain burning intensity. I wonder at the translation of his name - I googled "king liquid manure" with no hits except this page.

Fantastic shot, Lia... you captured the strangeness of this bird very sharply. Odd name? The stare of the eyes gives a lot of impact to your photo. I also like the framing. Very nicely done!

Quite a shot there, Lia. I don't know if I would want to come face to face with this creature. Beautiful colors though. Sharp details and great POV. I like the intensity of his eyes. Well done and TFS. : )

Love the portrait, somehow he looks human! Great colours and detail. Love your note.

Thanks for sharing.

Hi Lia. This is a superb photo--well exposed, great pov, beautifully cropped . . . shame about the translation :) . . . he is actually, in English, a King Vulture :)
