17th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Natural World
Tender Eyes

A gorgeous griffon vulture is seen soaring the skies in Monfragüe National Park in Spain. How can anyone say vultures bring bad omens while looking at such tenderness in this griffon vulture's eyes? Vultures are important members of the environment, as they take care of recycling dead matter...When looking at them flying, we should feel humbled and admire them.
