Interesting.
I'd noted for long time the absence of Vultures here.
Always found them plain ugly, but they have their place.
Who won?

Vultures won hands down but wasn't a fair fight as roughly another 30 arrived shortly after this guy.

Fantastic, indeed!

That must have been right in front of you @ 217mm (even cropped).

Definitely, right place, right time. :)
