We took this closeup shot of a White-backed Vulture (Gyps africanus) with its whitish fluff of feathers forming a collar around the neck and extending down the chest while the bird was perched in a tree near a waterhole in Moremi Game Reserve (Botswana) the morning of August 23, 2012. We'd left Xakanaxa Camp just after sunrise via a safari vehicle to bird and look for big game. The eye, bill, and bare facial skin are black. Temperatures were in the upper 70's with clear sunny skies.
