About This Image

A layered photo, the sunset was taken at saltfork reservoir. The buzzard was taken from my backyard. The 2 seem to work well together. Sure an Eagle would have been more elegant, but remember, buzzards are people too! He appears to be drifting in to roost after a long day of roadkill shopping. Thanks, Don

Amazing. Not surprising that this one is a winner. The Buzzard just adds to the beautiful sky. Until I read your description, I thought what great timing. the joys of technology huh. Not knowing much about birds, I would have believed you if you said it WAS an eagle.

Peaceful/well layered and good idea to mount the flying eagle: You could sell it like a poster! Ikka

Thanks again everyone for all the kind words. This is a great site, full of very nice people. Doug, there are always buzzards in my backyard...lol. I live in the country, there is a hollow behind me and the buzzards catch the updraft from it. Thanks again all, Don
