Thats a buzzard?
Looks more like a vulture to me.
However - great image !

Thanks....and yes, it is likely a vulture rather than a buzzard....but...I took poetic license to alliterate the line, like the original that inspired it.

Actually I prefer the vulture over the buzzard even for poetic reasons.
Buzzards are quite common where I live, and vultures have this uncomfortable meaning of death, decay and preying on the deceased which greatly fits the image with its barren tree.
A B/W interpretation also might support that.

Very Nice framing.

But you had better remove the red CA on the right side of the tree.

It's so easy now with your prefered software.

Have a Nice Day.
