The world is a vampire … full of vultures

vultures

This was a shot I stumbled on recently of some vultures that were feeding on a possum carcass in the middle of a street in the neighborhood I grew up in. It was back over the Christmas break.

We tried to get as close as we could and still take pictures. The road is a bit of a thoroughfare so it was difficult for them to get to the carcass and feed for any length of time.

The vultures were MASSIVE with really wide wingspans. I can’t remember the exact count, but I seem to remember upwards of 10 to 15 vultures sitting in trees waiting for their turn to feed.
