revolting? the vulture . . .

    Newer Older

    . . . admittedly, this is a beautiful and unusual specimen. For one thing, this perspective hides an ungainly and inelegant neck! But who among us doesn't inwardly shudder when we see a flock of these birds, circling lazily overhead? I know I do, as I try to remind myself that they are not evil . . . they are simply nature's "garbage collectors," providing an invaluable service by keeping our landscape clean!!

      Fantastic!! VERY well done!! I love the narrative and your perspective - not only on their 'worth', but, on size - they really ARE big!!

      This is lovely! (Vultures aren't revolting. Think of the mess if they weren't around...)

      This one is gorgeous! Actually, I like vultures - they soar so gracefully. And if you follow where they lead, you can find really interesting dramas on the ground.

      This white vulture looks gorgeous - actually they're wonderful to watch when they fly!

      if you just look at their faces...they aren't evil...but if you look together with all those fur around them...they do look a little revolting! Great work!
