Vultures, Kuwait

Photograph by Mohd Khorshid

While photographing raptors on a windy day in Kuwait City, Kuwait, photographer Mohd Khorshid and a friend came across two vultures. During their migration, he writes, tired raptors like these are targeted for capture. The two friends relocated the birds "to make them safe until they start a new journey."
