  21. Your close-ups make us realise the majesty of birds Bob. None more so than a vulture we normally see on high only.

  22. Is it behind bars because it's done something wrong, Bob? I wonder what that would be. If it's behind bars to preserve it, I'm sure it would rather be out there free, taking the risk.

  23. I think these are the loveliest of all Vultures, sad behind bars though. I got to finally see a Great Gray Owl on our recent vacation. Now I know what your header/banner image looks like in real ;)
