[font=Helvetica, Arial, sans-serif]King Vulture from Costa Rica January 2017.  These birds have a wing span of about 6 feet.  It was photographed as it flew across the valley toward us as we photographed smaller birds.  Images made with 7/d2 and 500 f/4 with 1.4 TC hand held.[/font].

Ed, quite the impressive wingspan, captured beautifully - love those splayed wingtips.

Excellent incoming flight shot, Ed. Love the symmetry and the way the primaries curled up.

Nice incoming shot and I too like the seperated primaries showing the classic vulture wingspan. Well done
