1/1250s at f8
Date: 7 April 2008
this image near Ramanagar at Karnataka. When I saw this critically
endangered vulture on the cliff I decided to play a bit with light and
dark by choosing an appropriate angle. Made the image through un-lit
foreground tree to create a kind of natural burning effect to balance
the beautiful blue sky.
Vulture is a critically endangered species found in western and southern
India. Formerly known as the Long-billed Vulture the species was split
from the north-eastern Slender-billed Vulture. This 92cm bird
continues to face the threat of habitat loss and negative effects of
diclofenac use on food source.
