Ominous Skies

Turkey Buzzard

During our  visit our son-in-law took us to view the playing fields,  the woodland trails and the new community garden that are a part of Sienna Plantation, where they live. There were no children on the playing fields, but we were stunned by the flock of buzzards enjoying their own game. In this case a dead armadillo.  There were over 50 buzzards near the dead animal which did not seem like a very good ratio, but maybe they know how to share politely.  I was only able to get one photo of a buzzard in this dead tree against a cloudy Texas sky.

    The sky does look ominous – that blue gray that indicates storms on the way! I got one photo of a buzzard, last year, and it looks a lot like yours…

    Wow – love the spooky atmosphere in this photo.

    We got photos of the buzzard flock on the ground but they are not as spooky there. The dead tree adds atmosphere.
