Vulture’s matutinal ritual


When one watches a Turkey Vulture’s morning, it certainly seems to reveal a ritualistic behaviour.

The day begins with the vulture spreading its wings to warm then in the early morning sunlight.

Then comes the obligatory stretching of the wings.

And the pooping.

There follows more stretching, while scanning the ground below for a possible breakfast.

It is time to head off and look for tasty carrion.

OK, this is going to take a bit more effort.

    The first image calls to mind a conductor raising her baton. Let the music begin!
