    Wow! It’s like he’s posing for you! Beautiful wing span! Great photo!

  • There were 32 in the trees waiting for me to leave so they could finish off the deer carcass on the ground. Every time I moved they raised their wings! Thanks so much!

    Fantastic, I have seen them stand with wings spread like this on hot days here. The are natures garbage men☺ and magnificent birds. I have watched them soar forever without ever flapping a wing.

  • All 32 of them perched watching me closely…they thought I might steal their meat!

    It must have been an awesome experience! We had a flock roost in our woods one night. The next morning before they were quite ready to go to work, I stood below the trees to watch and listen. Not right under the trees, mind you. :) Anyway, the rustling of the wings is an eerie sound. This photo reminds me of that moment, way before a digital camera was welded into my hand. This is such a GREAT photo!!! Well done!

  • Thanks so much Jean, they are a wonder to observe!
