Nature's First Alert

A replete looking vulture having just gorged on a buffalo for lunch. Poaching is rife in Africa and these birds are the best warning system for alerting us to what is happening on the ground. Very special creatures.

Somber but beautiful shot.

Amazing shot! I see the Turkey Vultures often on the road, cleaning up road kill critters. We don't worry so much about poachers here in SC. I do get a little upset when I see someone ran over a turtle. I will stop traffic to move a live turtle to the other side of the road. I don't care who rages. =)

Great catch!

I've slammed on the brakes many times for turtles and squirrels :) Someday I'll probably get rear-ended. The turkey vultures get quite a few meals here from road kill, too - often armadillos or sometimes deer.

Interesting perspective. Here the vulture is thought of in a different way. Fascinating color to the sky.

I found the vultures to be fascinating birds to watch. I like how regally you've captured this one.

Vultures may not be the most elegant looking birds, but they are quite fascinating and so important. Friggin' poachers.

Fantastic capture.

Great photo - reminds me of the scene from the Jungle book!

Beautiful capture of this vulture. Not my favourite bird, but I can understand that they are very useful for keeping an eye on what is happening on the ground.

Wonderful picture!

Vultures are great birds. They are not very popular because they eat carrion. But humans also eat dead animals. They just imagine they are doing it in a more refined way...
