Today we get a shot of a typical large bird trying to take out Canada’s version of “Air Force One” in a shot I call “Vulture Vs Canadian Government.”


(Straight Out Of Camera)


Nikon D810
Sigma 150-600mm f/5.0-6.3 C
640 ISO



  • Raised exposure, contrast, shadows and whites
  • Lowered highlights and blacks
  • Raised clarity and vibrance
  • Cropped in a bit
  • Lowered saturation
  • Raised sharpening
  • Added lens corrections
  • Spot healing for sensor specs


Final Thoughts

I took this shot six months ago, and didn’t notice the bird in the photo until today.

Normally I would just clone it out, but the birds defiance of the Canadian Government needs to be observed here.

It is tax season after all.


The Sigma 150-600 Contemporary is sharp enough to make out that Canada is “The True North, Strong and Free…”
