Former African Buffalo

Our Tanzanian driver, Emeleon, was excellent in telling the names of all of the birds that I was photographing but sometimes it was later difficult to match up my scribbled notes with the actual shots so, for these vulture shots, many thanks to Arno Meintjes of South Africa for his help with sorting out the vulture species for me.
