This is a Turkey Vulture, and these were taken from the canopy tower. You're about 75ft in the air at the top of it looking down on EVERYTHING.

Those pictures are amazing. The first really shows good detail of the bird. I like how you can see the wind effect on the right wing on the first shot as the birds wing moves down. At the tip you can see a bit of the feather still pointing up.

Amazing shot Axe!

Without the gear (or better gear), I wouldn't have been able to get the shots, no, but the gear doesn't work itself. You still have to know how to operate it properly :)

Not to mention having the "eye" to know what is a good shot and then get it.

Guys, please don't include the image in your replies. It just adds unnecessarily to the bandwidth. If you need to refer to one image or the other, use the link instead.

those photos are incredible...great details (I think the wing tips sticking up are a good feature, they show the wind underneath) and the focus is all on the bird. Nice work!
