this is a great photo! i love when they spread out their wings like that. Would it be okay if i used this as a reference for a drawing or painting in the future? It would probably not be an exact copy, just roughly following the pose and the guide of the feathers.

hmmmm *changes its coloration to black and white then adds a larger beak and another set of wings, along with a large feathered crest* looks just like a Death Hawk now :3

I love it when vultures pose like that. *_* It makes one realize how huge these wings and feathers are. Also they're just beautiful to look at. I know my dad mistook vultures for eagles when he saw photos of them that didn't show their heads.

I think a vulture takes a sun bath in order to kill off bacteria. So it's like cleaning itself and its feathers. But I may be wrong.
