Gypaetus barbatus – Γυπαετός – Bartgeier

In the beginning of this year i visited mount Agios Dikaios, hoping to observe – and photograph if possible – the famous Bartgeier (old name Lammergeier), as one of the three remaining pairs in Greece is still breeding successfully there . This individual just appeared for no more than 1 1/2 sec and let me catch those two snapshots. It seems that it carries branches preparing for another breeding season.
3/1.
