When Vulture Closes His Wings by 

I thought this pose by the vulture could represent day and night. When he’s awake and his wings are open the earth gets light. When he sleeps and closes his wings, the moon rules. I used 3 NASA photos from various telescope images that NASA says are okay for public use, and the turkey vulture is my picture from our woods. The various layers were re-sized and made translucent to varying degrees.

I love nature, science, poetry, prose, art, music – you name it! Now that I’m retired, time is mine to spend as I wish (pretty much), and I wish to take pictures of our natural world.

Bringing the outdoors in for others to see, especially those who may not get the opportunity to wander next to a pond, fish at the beach, or tramp in the woods, is a pleasure. I hope to build a window to the wonders of nature that fill our everyday lives.
