Pilot Mountain, NC (Current Weather Conditions)

Caption: I must have taken 40 shots of these graceful birds soaring overhead, the vast majority of which didn't turn out; they move fast! Sorry for the quality, but it does show the white wing patches and red head of the turkey vulture. Cropped.

Thanks, Julia! If this was the best one, you can imagine what the rest looked like! They have to sit still if I'm going to get a decent shot of them; neither the camera nor I can focus that fast.

Wow, I have tried to capture one or many of
these guys over our place, but to no avail.

Good capture, Kathy!

They have a face only a mother could love, but you're right, Joan, very graceful in the air. Thanks for all your comments!
