_MG_1206 Turkey Vulture

This bird was severely underexposed because of strong backlighting and not enough exposure compensation. I was amazed that I was able to find so much detail with shadow lifting in Photoshop. I did remove some offending branches in Photoshop. White sky is kind of harsh looking, so,thanks Judith for the suggestion, I've added a sky in the next image.

Fantastic! You got really close to this guy, which is sometimes quite hard to do.

He looks like he has an elaborate head dress.
