Default Sharing a Turkey Vulture

Well we have all seen them circling overhead but to be able to sneak up on one as it rests on the edge of a cliff gives us a closer look at what they really look like.

I always wondered why they call them vultures. Now I know.

That is one ugly bird! Great capture, though. We have them circling over our house occasionally but they never come low or land for a photo.

Really well done - what a great sight to capture. Shame that they are a bit on the ugly side, that's life.
