Vultures posing nicely.

Ruaha, Tanzania

 

There were birds all over this buffalo carcass - landing, pecking, fighting, arguing with Jackals, and then for just a few seconds they all stood still and posed for this photo. The four bigger birds are White-backed Vultures, and the other red-headed ones are Hooded Vultures.

 

On one occasion at our second destination in Katavi, we had five different species together on another buffalo kill.
