Griffon Vulture captured while performing at the Jurong Burd Park Singapore.
Initially I had wanted to submit the color version, but I finally decided that the BW version is more appropriate for this challenge.

This is the prettiest shot of a vulture I have captured so far. Such amazing looking birds.

Lovely shot Andrew. It's like the vulture is looking up at you, perhaps it was :)

Wow! Congrats Andrew. Amazing photo as always. :)

You should be a spokesperson for Sigma!

I also just realized that the lens you have is pretty much the same as mine, but everyone seems to mark it down as being yours. (mine only shows 36 owners although it is a very popular lens) hmmm. Sigma 70-200 f2.8 EX DG APO HSM
