Very impressive shots, Bakubo, Sury, Smulnik;
Henry, that's quite the action shot ! The result looks worth all the trial/error efforts. : )
Sury, you were good starting this thread, because those three shots of yours are bursting with vivid colours. That's a very smart water bird. Apart from having beautifully distinctive feather colours, it uses tools...amazing.
Smulnik, those colours are amazing as well as the close up details. I don't think the bird is a Turkey Vulture, they are bald around the head and the bodies are covered with muted black/grey plumage.
Edit: It's a King Vulture
apparently. Link: KING VULTURE
