I was down at Aransas Wildlife refuge and came across this fellow. He never moved he though I


was with 10 feet of him. Guess he thought he was camouflaged will enough. And the buzzard seemed to want his photo taken. My lens doesn't focus less than 8 feet away and I had to back up to get the shot.

Buzzards are not the most photogenic birds, but that is a great shot!

That buzzard stayed up there close to me for a good 5 minutes. He was still there when I left. Thanks for the comments.

The refuge is quite lush right now and mosquitos are horrendous.
