Re: Black Vultures

I don't usually do birds, but happened across this scene on the way home Saturday and couldn't resist...

a group of Black Vultures were feeding on a Deer carcass in a ditch along the road, and popping up on the fence posts to sun themselves after dining.

unfortunately they were about 25 yds away and the longest lens I had with me was the 50mm, and the bottom image is a significant crop. Handheld -braced on truck door.

way too far for the 14-35MM

longest lens I had was the 50mm F2 ... a testament to the quality of the 50mm ... not too bad?
