17th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Natural World
turkey vulture in a tree.

beauty is in the eye of the beholder. I have a regular route that I take almost daily to take nature shots. one of them is a secluded boat landing where I took this. I saw several vultures soaring and was surprised to see this one peel off and land in a tree. I drove slowly, opened the sunroof and took this shot right through it.
