Turkey Vulture at Nance Pond

Here is a striking personification of natural curiosity and focus by a turkey vulture, as it spotted me, and came over for a visit while I was down at the pond yesterday. The wingspan of these birds is about six feet, or just under two meters.

Since coming to Paradise I have felt a kinship with the vultures, who tirelessly and humbly clean the earth of carrion for the rest of us, and they have come to know me too.
