A Turkey Vulture for Camera Critters

It isn't often that I have an opportunity to view a Turkey Vulture up close, however on Thursday of this week while driving along the highway I saw a large bird land in a driveway.  Being very curious as to what it was I shed the traffic behind me and turned and went back to look at the bird.  The large bird was still there and with my 300mm zoom lens I could see the red head and face.  I knew it was a Turkey Vulture. 

I had never had such a close-up view like that before.I am linking today to Eileen's Saturday's Critters

Vultures get a bad rap, but they are necessary. Nice shots!

Not too pretty on close-up, but I appreciate the important role they play in the environment!
