On my way to the YMCA I spot a flock of hungry Ibises moving across a field toward water's edge. I park and sprint to head them off; then just hid and held my breath. On they came into the blinding reflection, oblivious to all that wasn't food. Luckily, my camera saw what my eyes couldn't stand to see directly.

I guess the Turkey Vulture deserves equal time with his black cousin, although I find him far less attractive. Both are well designed for how they make a living. The "bald" head is an adaptation to prevent microbes in carrion from finding a place to anchor themselves. A magnificent adaptation from the point of view of evolution.
