This Ruppell's Griffon Vulture is mantling the entire carcass of a Wildebeest that didn't make it across the Mara River in Kenya. The Wildebeest's horn can be seen just beneath the left wing.

Very attractive shot of this Black Crowned Night Heron, Paul! The yellow flowers add a nice touch of color to the overall appeal of the photo.

Two excellent captures, flurp! I'm especially fond of the Goldfinch...love all the color. It would make a nice wall hanger.

Very nice capture, Steve! I wonder if the Ruppell's Griffon Vulture's eyes are a bit too big for it's stomach?;-)a

Thanks, Mike! No doubt this vulture is a "I think I can" creature.
