Cooling Off

 
Photographed at 5:41 pm on 6 February, 2016 in Olare Motorogi Conservancy, Kenya, using an EOS 1D X camera and an EF 400mm f/2.8L IS II super-telephoto lens.
 
ISO 200, 1/2000 sec., f/2.8, 400mm focal length, handheld Manual exposure.
 
*****************************************************************************************************
 
After a fruitless hour of meandering through back country we turned toward the setting sun in order to see what might be elsewhere. A small forest of stunted trees was so dense that our progress was impeded.
 
Atop one tree a lappet-faced vulture was perched, its wings widely spread as a cooling measure in the hot late afternoon air. As we drove past, it seemingly took very little notice of our passage below.

I'd looked for this topic with no success, starting another which I've since deleted. (Thanks @Tom Kellie ) Does anyone have photos of the stunning bearded vulture? (lammergeier)
