    I really like this. I wish I could say more about why. Maybe because I have a soft spot for ugly birds? ;) Maybe because I love the surreal mood of the oof foreground? Or the kind of spookiness of the bird's pose? Dunno. Just like it.

    That thing is massive. I think I seen one a few weeks ago in a tree in Ohio. I was driving and couldn't stop but it was freaky looking.

    at first I thought it a painting. How perfect the image reminds me of the Phoenix rising from the ash. Very cool shot!

    Best shot of a turkey vulture I've ever seen. I really like it.

    Funny story, the bird banding place caught it's first one ever last summer. The poor person who took it out of the net, ended up wearing it's vomit ALL over her. And since they eat dead animals, it was really horrible. She was really unhappy.
