It's not technically that great a photo of a griffon vulture (Gyps fulvus) but I thought that it captured the essence of this magnificient bird: a few of them were gliding up the gorge of Samaria, level with me at a little above 2000m on the summit of Volakias, so that I could photograph them with the mountains across the gorge of Samaria as a background.

A small request: around 98% of my income is (directly or indirectly) tourism related and that part is currently hovering close to zero. I am self-employed and no one is going to continue paying me a salary. Even if I don’t count my work time and the considerable cost of quality photo equipment there are still costs involved in going to places that are often quite a distance away. There are a few ways to support my work which you can see here. It would be appreciated.

Finally, a BIG thank you to those of you (a good chunk of my regular visitors) who responded to my plea for donations. You make a difference and it's a really good feeling to see appreciation that goes beyond a Facebook Like or similar 🙏
