This is an African White Backed Vulture at the Moholoholo Rehabilitation Centre in Limpopo, South Africa. It's an old picture which I took back in 2007.

I wondered about uploading this because it's captive, and all of my African Wildlife pictures so far are not. But captive animals are real animals too, and so deserve equal treatment by photographers.

This vulture is in rehabilitation because he has a damaged wing and sadly he will not fly again. So in this case, as a captive, he is in a good place.
