About This Image

While out chasing the rabbits and birds around the desert I noticed this guy keeping a eye on me. On his second fly by I got this photo of his ugly face. The wind was blowing like normal and they love it, they can soar for hours on end.

Hi Ann, Thanks for your nice comment :) They are fun to watch as they soar around with no effort at all. I know they will not attack me but when they get close they are scary because they are so big and ugly. I think I will try and crop this to see if I can show there ugly face.

Wowsa! Now this is scary bird, Alan. If that was flying close over me, I'd begin to worry. LOL Great capture Alan! In the large version it's something else..!

Hi Alex and Jas, Thanks very much for your fun comments.. Well Alex I sure hope they are not after me LOL.. I think they are just curious, when I get way out in the desert they will usually buzz by. Yep Jas they are pretty ugly and the red head does not help there looks. Just don't play dead and you will be safe ROFL..

I didn't realise that buzzards were ugly birds. We have them here and I've not managed to get a decent shot of one yet - not sure I'm going to try, now I've seen this one close up. LOL Great shot Alan! :)

Hi Carol and Don, Thanks again for your nice comments. The large version does look a tad better, usually it's the other way around LOL.. I guess they are handsome to there moms :) Don they have been around here for ever, I see them just about every time I go out in the desert. This one was flying extra low for some reason.
