Nice photo's! Must remember Egyptian vultures are probably the smallest of the African vultures and the Lappett is one of the biggest, but great comparision photo.

Another nice comparison, you can see why the smaller vultures have to wait for the larger birds to break into the carcass. This is waht I love about vultures, how they all fill a little niche in order to get there share of a carcass.
