Ruby Tuesday Turkey Vulture

While this turkey vulture looks menacing, they do not attack any living species. However, I must admit that being only about 20 feet away from this creature while he was giving me the evil eye, made me very uneasy. He was fine until I began snapping his photo. That look he gave me along with his spreading those wings told me to get out of there :)



Visit Ruby Tuesday for more great photography.

That is a great photo of the turkey vulture even if he is a bit scary. I'd love to get that close to one of them. I did once have two of them circling above me.

I see these birds a lot in our area. They are ugly, but it is a good subject for a Ruby Tuesday post. Well done.
