As a child of the South I read/am familiar with Thornton Burgess' books. One I have in my possession is "The Adventures of OL' Mistah Buzzard". I have plenty of respect for buzzards (Vultures) and the necessary job that they do. There is a tree on Highway 168 near Aydlett that is routinely full of buzzards resting. I have pined for an opportunity to shoot pics!
The opportunity came to me in a smaller number and window of time: the empty lot next to me!
I spied them late it seems (just after 9am), but was able to get a few handheld shots. There were three and when I first spotted them they were all in a drying posture.
From the book:
"Ol' Mistah Buzzard was there holding his wings half spread for the air to blow throught them and the sun to fall on them."
Yes, that is it simply. What a wonderful sight!
