  2. Carletta says:

    When I see that many at once I’m always a little creeped out. 🙂
    Nice capture Pat!

  3. Karen says:

    Oh my, now that makes for an interesting shot of a barn!

  4. Barb says:

    Nice capture of the flying vultures…made even better by a barn.

  5. Are these black vultures? I know that there are only 2 or 3 vulture species in the Americas.

  6. Nancy says:

    Fantastic capture Pat!

    Such beautiful creatures! Their wing spans are amazing. Wonderful shot.

    vultures and a barn, perfect! we’ve had a lot of vultures hanging around here too lately. in fact, yesterday i took my dog for a walk in there were 5 snacking on a dead squirrel in the road. as we approached, the flew off one at a time but one stayed there and only walked away as we past. he was the brave one. i was wishing i had my camera on me!

  11. Minoru says:

    Nice capture! There are veltures which have various flying styles. I like the velture which is in upper left in your photo.

  12. Latane says:

    I had to laugh. The picture was of a wake of vultures. The youtube video below (which I did not watch) showed several basketball players all tangled up in a fall… vultures after the ball, no doubt. hehe.

  13. It’s nice seeing all the various positions of the wings. I shudder to think what their meal was. :/

  14. Cheryl says:

    This is a neat photo…love it! I like the green roofed barn, too.

  15. Lisa Gordon says:

    Great shot, Pat, especially with the barn in it.
    I never realized that vultures were this big.

  16. HansHB says:

    Great flight photo!

  17. Kerri says:

    Nice flight shot!

  18. Eileen says:

    That’s funny! Great shot following along behind the Vultures.

  19. Jim says:

    WOW! Pat, what a wonderful photo. We tried to ‘capture’ a flock ducks landing in the water today….but missed it!!

  20. Carol Carson says:

    Beautiful (and very useful) birds and the perfect backdrop to your charming barn.

  21. Boom & Gary says:

    Great action shot!! Boom & Gary of the Vermilon River, Canada.

  22. I’m always happy to find out that they aren’t looking for me!

  23. Jori says:

    Yikes! Those things freak me out. We had a bunch swooping in our yard over the summer. They were after bird nests. Shudder. Get photo!!

  24. Mick says:

    Great photo of the vultures in-flight – but what had they been eating?

  25. Tricia says:

    Something spooked them… Quick w/ the camera! =)

  26. Don says:

    A fine capture of these birds. Being disturbed gives us idea of their persistence in getting prey.

  27. Teresa says:

    That is a wonderful shot! I love the whole feel of this.

  28. bettyl says:

    What an awesome sight! Wow! Thanks for sharing.

  29. ladyfi says:

    I love to see birds in flight. Nice shot!

  30. Great shot Pat! I always have trouble distinguishing vultures from crows in the air. They look very similar in flight.

  31. Raajii says:

    Your photography is gorgeous!

  32. RH West says:

    They look very spooky don’t they? Great shot!

  33. There is something only a mother vulture could love about those faces… Thank you for linking into Nature Notes Pat… Michelle

    I love watching vultures whether soaring high on a thermal or roosting en masse in the swamp or perched in a tree. Great capture!

    Although there were no vultures on the movie, Hitchcock just came to my mind. 🙂 Great capture!
