photographing vultures with wide angle lens and infrared beam cells
Tejo Internacional, Portugal


The Griffon Vulture and the Eurasian Black Vulture are the two species I plan to dedicate more time to, in the near future. This is one of the approaches I am currently working on: using a wide angle lens and infrared beam cells to photograph these necrophages feeding. This system is easy to assemble, but some aspects have to be considered to preserve the equipment, since an attack by 50 to 100 birds, some weighing over 10 kg, can seriously jeopardize cameras.
