Strike a Pose

We were on our way to the river to try some slow speed photography when we came across 4 vultures just standing on a mound. The light was still good so I decided to stick around for a bit. I was hoping to get a photo of the birds looking at me. Not only did it happen but at the same time a topi crossed behind them. I waited for the topi to move away as I did not want it behind the birds but on the side while hoping that the vultures would not look away. I got my wish and took the shot.
