My Sis in Wis loves things associated with the Old West: cactus, tumbleweeds, John Wayne movies, road runners, etc. Her latest fixation - buzzards. This turkey vulture is sitting on the fence post along our driveway. Unfortunately, I discovered its motive for perching there - coyotes had killed an orange tabby cat and left only its head and upper arms lying in our drive. This vulture and a few of his friends were waiting nearby for a safe moment to dive and dine.
In my ever-increasing photography prowess, I took this pic through the windshield of the truck. Who needs specialty lenses or filters to attain a smoky photo effect when all you need is a dusty, smudgy window? :)
Sis, this one's for you!
