Perhaps not everyone's favorite species, but I shudder to think what the landscape would be like without them and their carrion-eating kin.

I certainly believe nature has use for them.
Beautiful set sir.
Why would the second one remind me on a cormorant?
(Because they also have the nasty habbit of showing their backs) :-)

I think both species do this to warm (and in the case of Cormorants, dry) themselves. In first two photos the Vultures were perched next to a steep riverbank on a cool morning. I suspect that they were waiting for some warm air before taking off.

Thanks for your comments.
