  1. Great image, HJ. I’ve seen the lappet-faced vulture in the wild, and even though the pair were perched on a nest way at the top of an acacia tree, they still looked enormous and daunting.

    • As it happens with all vultures, they are not the most handsome birds in the wild kingdom however are among the most interesting birds. I saw them in Israel, going from Jerusalem to Eilat on a bus. The vultures have something special in their system…they are immune to most of bacteria and viruses. This could be very precious to humans in the future. Thank you my friend. 🙂
