I love clouds.
Birds flying in front of clouds? Even better.
These aren’t just birds, though, these are all Turkey Vultures. Scavengers by nature, as they do t have the talons or grip strength for live prey, they circle around until they find a good source. Usually roadkill of some kind.
The most fascinating thing about these birds is the sheer amount of them together. Paul and I see a pair around our house quite often, but today there were seven! We were working out in our garden when they first flew overhead at fifty feet. They were right over top of us! A little freaky to say the least. I called out to them to let them know we were still alive and kicking 😉
They quickly kept cruising the sky, and by the time I was able to grab my camera they were almost out of sight. Although they weren’t close, they humored me by flying against some of the prettiest clouds in the sky.
