Jake, Nice catch and detail. When you see Turkey Vultures with their wings spread out, they're actually using the rays of the Sun to help rid themselves of mites.

Nice pose allowing light on the underside of the wings, Jake. I like the asymmetrical placement of the perch.

Nicely composed and exposed with good detail in both the darks and lights. The bird looking down helps with the angle.
