While visiting Florida, I was hoping to find various examples of "noble" birds ... you know, bald eagles and the like. What I found, mostly, were scores of vultures. I found, however, that wasn't a bad thing.
The Turkey Vulture is actually a visually stunning critter. From the neck down he's magnificent. Of course, from the neck up he can send chills down Freddy Krueger's spine ... but still!
I found this bird (and several others) at the Merritt Island NWR near Cape Canaveral. Never underestimate ANY of nature's critters when it come to a photo opportunity!#LandscapePhotography +Landscape Photography +Margaret Tompkins +Dave Gaylord +Doug Hagadorn +Eric Drumm +Jeff Beddow +David D +Bill Wood +Tim Newton
