Snapshot Saturday

A couple days ago, a large object moving toward our living room window caught my eye. I turned and saw these two huge birds hanging out in our backyard. My daughter and I watched them for about 5 minutes before they decided to move along (thankfully, not finding anything to eat in our yard!) Turns out they were turkey vultures! What a crazy experience.

They were huge, with a wingspan of around 4 feet a least!

    A – My husband swears they were attracted to my neglected compost pile. I begged to differ. I’ll give him your “lost” theory…
    JD – They are oddly ugly and beautiful, I think!
    M – You should’ve heard the dog going crazy inside. I’m glad I didn’t let her out though. I hear that if you scare them they vomit at you in defense…

    That is the one things about being an obsessive photographer – my camera is almost always within arm’s reach!
