"Cuban Bird - Turkey Vulture at Treasure Lake" - Monomad Saturday - Silhouettes

For this shot I had to get up at around 4 am in the morning. The tour "bird watching" began straight from my hotel room, which was located on the treasure lake on the premises of a fantastic hotel (Hotel Guama). I was picked up from a member of the hotel in a rowboat and then quietly we began to cross the river on the look out for Cuban animals, saw the sun rise from the water and of course plenty of beautiful birds. However, these shots were done just after we arrived back at the hotel.
