[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This was taken at a place called Monfrague National Park. Although there are Griffons all over Extremadura, there is a large comcentration here, dut to the high breeding cliffs. Sometimes if the wind is in the right direction, they swoop very close to the viewpoint, and a 500mm lens is far too much glass, as you can see here. But instead you get amazing head detail.

Tus fotos de aves son realmente bonitas. Merecen muchos más comentarios de los que reciben, pero TL se rige por las duras leyes del mercado: si no comentas, no te comentan aunque seas el mismisimo Cartier Bresson.

Esta toma, en la que se puede apreciar la mirada del buitre mientras vuela, es espectacular.
