Turkey Vultures“Vulture Universe” — kenne

This time of year turkey vultures are migrating north from Mexico and Central America. Each year one of their nightly stopovers is in trees near the Tanque Verde Wash, close by our home in Tanuri Ridge. I photographed this vulture early one morning with an almost white background. The big birds are often associated with death and darkness and not the important function they play in the removal of the dead animals therefore being very resourceful. A more appropriate symbol for this bird is renewal — a transformation from the dead to the living. These are just a few symbols I took into consideration creating the “Vulture Universe” computer painting.

  1. Very evocative sky, elevating the vulture as your words have done.
