Day 2, Turkey Vulture / Cathartes aura
I LOVE Turkey Vultures. I'm not sure that my friends feel the same way about them, but I am thankful for the chance to photograph this one on Day 2 of our South Texas trip. Is this an immature bird, with the white feathers on the back? So much easier t…

Did everyone remember to set their clocks forward an hour? I totally forgot - a good job I didn't have an appointment or something. This morning, too, I have had the Blue Screen of Death twice! Both times, I was on Facebook. Again hardly any photos be…

Today, I wasn't going to post any photos, but decided to edit and upload four in between doing (far more) important and very urgent things. Just needed a break.
