Close Encounters of the Bird Kind

I was editing photos for my next project on the train ride up to New York. I liked the above image and when I zoomed in to check focus I had a delightful surprise, enough to make me yell out in the Quiet Car.

Look who’s lurking in the silo window. I love surprises like that—small things that change the photo’s atmosphere. Well, she’s probably not all that small, but you know what I mean.

his is the scary house where the vulture bum-rushed me from that upstairs window.

That’s the second consecutive photo safari that included a vulture. Maybe I should stop combining long runs with photography?
