Turkey Vultures Are Circling
He's kind of an ugly bugger if you see him up close. He is to me anyway. In a way though he is beautiful. He has a bald red head that looks similar to Mr. Burns from The Simpsons. You can kind of see that in these pictures. He keeps his neck tucked in while he's flying though.
These birds eat dead animals. You can often see them circling over a dead animal. I had one circle over me one time though. I have no idea why. I won't say I wasn't a little worried. I got some good pictures of the bird though.
I wish I could have gotten a few better ones, but I was sitting in my truck at the time. When he got closer he was blocked by the frame of the truck. I would have gotten out, but there just wasn't enough time. just like that he was gone again.
Maybe a few kind gestures from some of us can help some of them. Maybe not. I've been going around trying to reconnect with some long lost friends in the blogging world, leaving a few comments for them. I can only try. Maybe even something as small as this might rekindle that spark for them. And besides, I miss many of them. Think about this the next time you're leaving a few comments. An extra one or two somewhere you know might be good.
So now I come to the end of this post. I don't usually talk about some of this stuff. Maybe I shouldn't have mentioned it. But I write what pops into my head at the time. Some of this stuff has been circling around there for awhile in the same way turkey vultures do. Some bloggers feel like that dead meat on the ground below these birds. Maybe some of them can be revived with a kind gesture here and there. I'll talk to you later.
