Winner of an Honorable Mention in the HBW World Bird Photo Contest.
This is one of the photos in the IBC that has impressed me most. The shot shows a perfect timing. One tenth of a second before or after and it wouldn't be the same. I wish we would have had it to be published in HBW2...
Many thanks for the kind comment. It was a fabulous sighting. A great chance to witness the awesome power of the Lappetfaced Vulture, which was already fending off a large number of African Whitebacked and Ruppells Vultures. I was really pleased to see that this photo was in focus and sharp. A real stroke of luck considering how fast the action happened.
