The confident Turkey Vulture
Might know his ability to fly
Is connected to a bird's culture
Have they ever wondered why
We as humans in our life span;
Weren't born with wings to fly
But the camera we hold in hand;
While walking on earth beneath,
Was designed by God's divine plan...
Who created mankind with feet....

Walking to the mail box this morning to pick up the Sunday paper I captured this image of the Turkey Vulture spreading its wings above me.

Best View in Light Box! Thank you!!!
