Day 145 - Turkey Vulture's Meal


Do you ever happen upon a great find? One of those once in a life time pictures. Today was that picture. I was so excited to find this guy chowing down on his dinner. I was driving around the lakes looking for something to take a picture of and spotted this guy out of the corner of my eye. After crawling in the grass inching my way towards him and snapping off a hundred shots, I felt satisfied I had gotten a picture I would like. Isn't he magnificent! I'm itching like crazy now from the grass but it was so worth it.

I'm entering this photo as my favorite of May over at Click It Up a Notch.
