Turkey buzzard....Texas Eagle....

Do you see anything in the distance???
 
 we walked up on a couple of Turkey Buzzards....
at the same barn we had seen one before...
 
I didn't have my long zoom lens on....
I was a little nervous to get too close...
after the whole goose episode....
I'm a little more cautious ...
Hubby walked up a little closer...
took a few photos for me...
Hotrod and I stayed back....


True love....
 
they didn't seem to mind us at all....
my thoughts and prayers go out to the people of Boston....
 My son and DIL put in a offer on their first home...
sending prayers their way....
(It's in our town.....just a few minutes away)

I had no idea buzzards kissed, especially in public... LOL i call them God's Garbage Guys...I think you were safe as long as you did not lay down and play dead. Hope all goes well with the new house

I love the two images of them on the roof!!!
I saw one cruising low over a parking lot I was crossing yesterday.

They are pretty big! Best of luck to your son & DIL. Keeping Boston in my prayers. It was so tragic.

I wouldn't want to get to close either after all your fun with the goose.
Those birds give me the creeps. ;o)
They hang out off and on on the lake behind the house. Their wing spam is huge.
Great photos.
What lens do you use for taking pictures of birds?
I only have a 18-200mm but it just doesn't capture what I want.
