A brilliant image - who knew there were so many different shades of black? Not the most beautiful of birds perhaps, but a thoroughly imposing one. Fine work Stanley.

Excellent images you posted today, Stanley. I’ve yet to see the Black Vulture on the ground, just soaring overhead.
 
Beautiful close-up of this prehistoric looking bird...Good work buddy.
