POTD: Cycle of Life

Posted on Updated on

I wasn’t expecting to see this. I was a bit startled and thought I might scare the bird. The small creek was quite a bit of a steep drop. This may be hard to look at but, the carrion eaters are the necessary clean-up crew. At first, I thought it might be a deer but, the tail appears to be too long.

    Vultures (yours is a Black Vulture) are most important to our world! They can eat anything dead without getting diseased. Beware of getting too close to one, their defense mechanism is to propel a vomit on you. Most disgusting! I definitely keep my distance with these great birds, lol.

    I think it’s an excellent photo. I don’t think it’s hard to look at because the whole composition speaks about nature and the nature of life.

    Well this is sad…yea necessary but sad…especially if you are the one getting picked. What do you think it is? My sister hit a vulture in the car…it went all over her windshield…worse smell ever.
