Early one morning, in the Masai Mara, we came across three different carcasses of wildebeests that had been killed during the night. On one of the carcasses, the vultures were coming and going. I chose a shorter length, and tried to get pictures of the vultures taking off and landing. I took this one just as he was soaring away from the wildebeest. I waited for him to be just above the horizon to take the shot.
