King Vulture

Not a wonderful shot, but our only sighting of a King Vulture on this year’s Point and Shoot Nature Photography Adventure to Costa Rica, and an immature bird at that. We were on our way from Selva Verde Lodge to Savegre Mountain Hotel, still in lowlands near the Sucio River and the junction of routes 4 and 32. That is a Black Vulture next to it. This is an extreme shot for the Sony Rx10iv. It was taken at 1200mm using 2x Clear Image Zoom, in relatively dim light, and then heavily cropped to get the bird this large in the frame. Program mode with my custom birds and wildlife modifications. Processed in Polarr and Apple Photos.
