Vultures are certainly not to be messed with and this was about as close as I was going to this lot. These aggressive and very argumentative fellows were part of a group of fairly immature African White-backed Vultures (Gyps africanus) and Rüppell’s Griffon Vultures (Gyps rueppellii) lunching on the carcass of a buffalo. The ones in this image are African White-backed Vultures. There was a huge amount of posturing and fighting for whatever was ripped from the carcass. It must be a stressful society to live in.

Living for partly in Italy, partly in Phuket and partly in other locations around the world – Hong Kong & Kenya when I can – I spend a lot of time photographing anything and everything. I particularly enjoy the challenge of capturing shots of wildlife large and small – from elephants to insects. A wider selection of my work can be seen on my website at www.dgcphoto.com.
