And God said, Let the waters bring forth abundantly the moving creature that hath life and birds that fly above the earth in the open firmament of heaven. Genesis 1: 20

How fragile humans appear in size
To the agile vulture of the skies
The perspective of far and near
Depends upon whose point of view
We as mortals see in earth's mirror
Before the life we pass is through....

Poetry by me AJP

I caught this bird through the windshield of our car as it was flying over head. I did not have my telephoto with me so I got a lot sky with the vulture. As small as the bird seems to us, we must appear small also from his birds eye point of view in the sky

    Love this capture, I agree with Don about the dramatic skies and I think that the one bird was just perfect for the photo!
