Turkey Vultures

While out for a Sunday afternoon drive down a country road Kristen saw this!
That's right a turkey vulture.
I find them kind of ugly & creepy looking. But very fascinating just the same.
He was patient for a minute or so for me to snap off a couple quick photos but then he flew away

So we went on our way....
While making our way back down the country road. Kristen noticed that they had flown up in a tree
Then it was his turn to take a couple of photos
Kristen took this photo which is my favourite of the vulutres even though it's more of a scenic photo rather than one of the turkey vultures themselves.
Today's Quote
Everybody needs beauty as well as bread, places to play in and pray in, where nature may heal and give strength to body and soul.
