20th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Natural World
Fulvus fugit

I had the immense privilege of being able to photograph this vulture that flew past us. The species is Gyps Fulvus and is one of the two species that can be seen in the Iberian Peninsula. The bird's wingspan is impressive and I prayed hard that the animal would be in focus in my shot. It is very likely that my Latin translation is not entirely accurate.
