Triton by Tienna Triton by Tienna
Common Buzzard 'Triton'

Just noticed I never uploaded a photo of him. Shame on me, he's such a pretty bird!

Zoo Stralsund, Germany

I'm always amazed how much more beautiful the buzzards are in Europe than in the USA. Ours are beautiful in flight, but their heads are rather ugly.

Great shot, catching him in flight like that! Not easy to do. =)

Thanks a lot!
This one was born in captivity and is a falconry bird, so he has to look good ;) I've never seen an US Buzzard, so I can't compare.
Catching him in flight was not that difficult since he's on flight display in the park I work at, so I know the birds. He's quite a quick flyer, though.

Actually, what Americans sometimes call "buzzards" are actually vultures. here's a picture and article about them: [link]

Taking the picture may have been made easier by the buzzard flying in the park, but it's still a great shot. You still have to be quick! =)

Ah, thanks for explaining! Turkey Vultures! We currently have four of them on flight display (and four more to come...). Compared to Common Buzzards they really have ugly heads, but then again, so do nearly all vultures. ;)

Very nice shot and great focus. The framing is real good too.
