These Black Vultures were on the side of the road in Florida, February 2009.
I have been trying to capture Turkey Vultures at home forever
it seems, can't begin to get close to them. These Black Vultures were on
the side of the road, we did a u-turn to get back to them.
They did not mind us stopping right next to them at all.
The rest of the story.....I dropped my lens cap under the seat in the car. I was kneeling next to the car trying to get the lens cap and stretched to reach it. Well, that wasn't very smart. My hand was then stuck under the seat. Couple of minutes of fright, and Jimmy pushing on the seat before my hand came loose. Morale of the story, do NOT stick your hand anywhere you have to squeeze it into. All of this to get a photo of the Black Vultures. (Alice you better like them.)
