I was walking along a local riverbank this afternoon taking photos when the winds started to pick up and the rain came down.

I decided to cut through a corner of the woods on my way back to my vehicle.

I guess this vulture was doing the same thing!

I don't know who was the more startled.

She/he promptly flew further down the row of trees, which I was thankful for because it was BIG!

Wow, Susan, thank you for writing to tell us about your sighting, and for sending us such amazing pictures!
