As we came over a hill, we could see him high on the next hill. Vultures aren't usually my favorite bird, but this guy was so huge, you could see him from so far away.
I have read that vultures dry off their wings in the morning sunshine, but had never seen it for myself before. That's what I love about rural life. Where else do you get to see stuff like this? And, where else could you stop right in the middle of the road to snap a picture??? But, you'll get that in a small town... :)
