Vulture
Vultures don't get a lot of good PR, but their feeding habits are very environmentally friendly. They clean up after the lions, cheetahs and leopards. This one was looking out into the distance seemingly thinking about where he would find his next meal.

Quite a stark look at this creature, Ruud. I wish for a little more lightness/detail around the eye area, but otherwise would have probably rendered this shot the same way if it were mine. Well done.
