There is a scene in the movie City of Angels where you see all the angels in long black trench coats gazing off into the sunrise. It’s really quite a beautiful and haunting scene and one which immediately came to mind this morning as I drove to work and saw this:
Every day I drive by a farm where turkey vultures roost in the surrounding woods. I have seen these turkey vultures roosting in the trees before but this morning they were all sitting in the treetops with their wings extended.
I’ve never seen this before and I wondered if they were not drying their wings out from the thunderstorms we had last night. That seems the most practical answer but the sight of it was striking enough to make me double back and stop to take these pics.
