Griffon, Black, Egyptian and Bearded vultures joined by a scavenging red fox, photographed at a feeding station high in the Spanish Pyrenees, May 2016
The Lammergeier or bearded vulture. This stunning vulture reminiscent of Ming the Merciless is known for its habit of dropping bones from great heights to get at the marrow within. Here an adult and juvenile wait for an opportunity!
No flies on me..
Juvenile on the wing close up!
Adult in flight
Double trouble; Two Eurasian black vultures on the look out.
Both scavengers these two hang around the banquet waiting for left overs after the meal.
On the scavenge
A red fox and griffon vulture, squabble over food! Spanish pyrenees.
