Turkey Vulture

I’m not quite dead yet

Viewed 22 Times

I was waiting for a train that never came near the CSX track in Funkhouser, Illinois when a turkey vulture kept circling over my van. I was able to get out and snap this shot of the bird in flight. Perhaps the vulture sensed weakness in me since I was wearing a knee brace as a result of tearing the meniscus in my right knee. Like Concorde in Monty Python and the Holy Grail, I’m not dead yet and in fact I might pull through.

Well we hope you do! Hope that knee recovers before the bird lands.


Great picture. Love vultures!
