Turkey Vultures
Lens: Pentax-D FA 150-450 mm Camera: Pentax K-1 Photo Location: Morro Bay ISO: 800 Shutter Speed: 1/2000s Aperture: F7.1

Turkey vultures on the prowl for something tasty. These dead tree-tops are a real hangout for cormorants, nesting and drying off up there. I was wondering whether the vultures were going after a chick, but they only hovered for a while and then moved on.

Dry branches like clawed tentacles trying to reach those who dare to fly
