A Turkey Vulture swooped right over me with his distinctive “wing fingers” fully extended. I love to see these vultures in flight, they are exceptionally graceful and agile in the air.
Vultures made a good fit for a silhouette image with those lifeless branches against the grey sky.
And when Eagles appear I absolutely have to take the shot!

I startled this vulture as he was feeding on a dead fish washed up at a boat landing on the Wando River. This, of course, startled me. Vultures are abundant near Charleston, SC, but this is the first one I’ve seen with his toes in the water.
Similar to the Black Vultures, the Turkey Vulture is elegant in flight.
He swooped up to a nearby dock waiting for me to move on.
