The bare essentials of bird watching.

Location: Santa Elena, Yucatán, Mexico

Today fresh out of my late afternoon shower, I peaked out the back door to see if there was any bird activity. To my surprise I saw four turkey vultures perching in the trees. You have to realize that a bird photography photo op is an opportunity that can be withdrawn at any moment. So, I dropped my towel, grabbed my camera and rushed out to the back yard to get some pictures.

Perhaps it is just as well that I am extremely isolated. A casual visitor would have probably have wondered about seeing a naked man with a camera looking up at the vultures in the trees.
