Griffon vultures
Tejo Internacional, Portugal
Nikon D300 + Nikon 14-24mm f2.8 + Jama Bir2 (IR cell beam)
iso 200, 1/125, f/14

After each session, I assess what went wrong. In this instance, two points needed correction: use greater speed (in this image the problem is not as obvious as in others, where there were rapid movements of the griffon vultures’ heads) and try a better composition, filling up the empty space, especially on the lower right corner, which partly resulted from the position of the goat’s body. When photographing wildlife, luck plays a lesser role than is sometimes thought…
