Hawk - Vincent Gulizio 2013

He was very high up. Best I can do as far as getting close even for a 200mm.(320 with the Crop Sensor Factor) :-/

Yes.. a Turkey Vulture.

Didn't know, and after a couple of comments about it on the first day, asked SC to remove in case it was unfair or deceptive. They told me it wasn't an issue and recommended keeping it up.

Ooops. :)
