This may not look that impressive at first glance, but it is by far the biggest bird I've ever seen! On the ground, from the car, i first thought it was just a big rock, until i realised the rock had head moving and that there were many similar ones nearby!

I tried to get as close as possible, for all i had was a 28mm lens, and shot it shortly after take off.. but to get it that big, in flight, with a 28! I'm telling you the beast was huge!

They call them "tass" (which is a literal transcription of what the driver told me so don't take my word for it!), but i guess it's some kind of giant vulture.. anyways, got to see it to believe it!
