Bearded vulture near the Himalayan mountains

A bearded vulture (IUCN: NT) hovers near the great Himalayan mountains. It was probably scanning the ground for food. The bird took one or two rounds there and that was the moment I captured this image. Seeing such a beautiful bird in such a magnificent backdrop was a great feeling itself.
