Give me a break &quot;<br />
They beat us to surrender weak with fright,<br />
And tugging and tearing without let or pause,<br />
They flap their hideous wings in grim delight,<br />
And stuff our gory hearts into their maws. <br />

A quick snap, it was. Not only for me, as the vulture had something else to snap in mind. <br />
Captured on a bird show in Tilburg, very humorous: go watch if you have the time! (and geo location for it:)) Geotagged,Oliemeulen,The Netherlands,Trigonoceps occipitalis,White-headed Vulture Click/tap to enlarge
