Caption: White-backed vultures (Gyps africanus) in flight. These medium-sized vultures are scavengers, feeding mostly from carcasses of animals, which they find by circling high above the ground. White-backed vultures breed in trees on the savannah of west and east Africa, laying one egg. Photographed in the Vumbura area of the Okavango Delta, Botswana.
