What's this large bird in the middle of the road?
We sneak a little closer. I am excited by this time. I have been trying to photograph a Turkey Vulture for the last month since they have been more actively feeding. They aren't uncommon, just shy and hard to photograph without a telescopic lens. They are one of my favorite birds.
Darn! He or she flew off before I could get a clear photo. What snack did I interrupt? How about an adult and a juvenile Blue Racer. These snakes appear to have been hit by a car. Now they are a tasty meal, at least the vulture thinks so.
We sat waiting a ways down the road hoping the vulture would return to eat. It soared in circles around us.
At this point the vulture was circling wider and further away so we packed up and left the scene. Hopefully it was able to go back and finish its meal.
