More pictures of vultures...

These were taken with my cell phone. I got all excited to see this and had to take pictures.


In this picture I didn't know how close this bird would have let me get. I didn't want him to fly away.

I've always thought that vultures are remarkable creatures. I wouldn't want one for a pet, but they sure are useful to the ecosystem.

Little Lamb said...

They do eat up the dead animals.

boneman said...

you are either lucky ...(I mean, to get pictures so close) or
you need a shower.

(sniff sniff sniff)

well, I guess you're very lucky.

Either they were waiting for some grilled mutton, or they hoped you'd leave them /t.'s grill so they could do up roadkill right ;)

foam said...

Boneman, Do you think next time I see these creatures I should get closer?

Skunky, there's a bbq in my back yard they can use.

Foam, they do seem interesting.

/t. I wonder why? Poor skunky.

foam said...

/t.'s easily humored, isn't he?

Little Lamb said...

It depends on what he finds humorous.

boneman said...

no mam. My thoughts on them is this...they eat carion.
Give them your luggage and run!

Little Lamb said...

The thing is I don't know how close I could have gotten to that bird. He saw me get out of the car and take his picture and his friends pictures and didn't fly away. They allowed me to take their picture which amazes me.

Maybe they thought I was going to give them food.

/t. said...

or maybe
they saw a lamb
on the road and thought
you were going to BE food...

Little Lamb said...

I wonder?

The Phosgene Kid said...

If I want to see vultures I just watch the presidential debates...

Little Lamb said...

That's a good one, Phos.

My vultures have feathers.

The Phosgene Kid said...

I took some pictures of vultures at the zoo I'll have to post for you...

There's probably some about to be foreclosed homes nearby.

Little Lamb said...

Phos, I'd like to see them.

Pug, That could be it. The house down the street you can barely see in the first picture is getting ready to go on the market.

dianne said...

I wouldn't get too close to them Lil Lambie they might peck you, I think they enjoy eating lamb. :) xoxox

Little Lamb said...

You're probably right.

The Phosgene Kid said...

Posted the vulture pictures, right after the polar bears...

/t. said...

HAPPY
VULTURE
WATCHING, LL!

/t.

Little Lamb said...

Thank you, /t. but I haven't seen any for a while.

/t. said...

you're ok
so long as
they're not
watching you

/t.

Little Lamb said...

Do you see these birds in the pictures? They ARE watching me.

/t. said...

BREATHE, LL!

BREATHE!

/t.

Little Lamb said...

I'll have to keep my distance from these birds.

foam said...

i see that you are still blocking the road ..

Little Lamb said...

I'm determined to get along with these creatures.

foam said...

they might start pooping on your hood though ..

Ruela said...

COOL

I love vultures ;)

give me one LL ;)

Little Lamb said...

Foam, I'll have to cover up my car and keep it out of harms way.

Ruela, Go ahead and take one. I'll share.

The Phosgene Kid said...

Should have done some "bumper hunting" though buzzard guts would be tough to scrape out of the grill.

Little Lamb said...

That's why you shouldn't go running them down.

Ruela said...

thanks :)
it's your car?
same color as mine.

Little Lamb said...

You're welcome.

Yes, it's the color crimson. Red is my favorite color.

Ruela said...

mine is crimson.
