    During the entire time he was out he kept ducking his head like he was going to deficate. Despite never having seen a turkey vulture take a shit, given what I know of raptors and that element of nature I assume that could have been messy as the peremeter cables where only a couple feet away, Had he actually needed to deficate some viewers would have ended up with an unsightly mess on their pants and shoes. :D

    it's not really that hard to tell between Noise and Film grain.

    seriously.




    The shot is great, wonderful background although i think the beak is a little to bright.

    :thumbup: work!

    Thanks, The BG is actually nothing special, just a good angle on the bird, it's grass.

    As for the beak...I was metering for the feathers, A slightly overexposed beak is a small price to pay for the shot.
