Vulture, Island and Autumn

With a short 3 hour window and no particular destination in mind, I drove down this one road to see if there were any Hawks hanging about... nope, not a one.  At the end of this very road, I parked the car and walked in through some bush to the shoreline. There is always a nice breeze coming off Lake Ontario.  From this vantage point you can see Nicholson Island in the distance.




As some of you may recall, Prince Edward County is an island but shouldn't be mistaken for Prince Edward Island which is on the East Coast of Canada.  The County sits on limestone and it is everywhere. At the shoreline you can clearly see the layers.

Autumn colours are still prevalent throughout the County and this section of shoreline was no exception.




All in all a great day.

Lovely view of the island, and a turkey vulture captured by the camera.

Regal looking creature. If that island had some palm trees on it, I'd be looking for the Skipper and Gilligan.
Nice catch on the bird, don't often have the chance to see them on terra firma.

My god, you can even make a turkey vulture look great! I must hire you to shoot my portrait.

The detail on the vulture is so clear. I see much of the same type of limestone here.

What a beautiful view across the water, as well as the other shots.
The colors of Fall are so lovely.
The Turkey Vulture is an interesting bird, a little scary looking, but amazing to watch soaring in the sky.
Happy Sunday!
