Thanks for all the comments.

Whilst we were on the shoot the handler told us: " Remember to duck. If it looks like one of these vultures might hit you - they probably will! They are not the most manouverable of birds"

Great choice to put him in the bottom of the frame. With his style of flight, that helps produce an ominous feeling.

The trees in the background have a Monet-like impressionistic look that I love. Meanwhile, it looks like the bird is going to eat whatever is next to me. Great shot.
