So I'm sitting in my studio minding my own business....


...when along came a spider.

A spider?

I wish!


no...not a spider...but I hear birds, lot's of birds outside my window...

'what in the world is going on?' me thinks...

'go see'...I do....

because my window is covered I need to go to the next room to look out....
are you ready for my view?

I'm going to warn you.....it ain't pretty!












he was bigger than a bread box!!!!!!
there were black crows darting at him and squaking like crazy...
apparently, he wasn't sharing.


like you just did, I screamed!

he flew away, leaving his disgusting lunch behind.
A couple of hours later he was back, so was I, with my camera.
I snapped a few pictures and told him quite firmly...
"you better eat it ALL!!"
quite an exciting life I live don't you think??

It's always disturbing to see nature at work like that! Years ago I was pulling into our driveway and our dog jumped up at my window with a dead and very bloody possum in his mouth. He was so proud of himself and I was trapped in the car yelling at him to get that gross thing away from me. It was horrible!!!

Oh my...I think I would faint if that was happening out my window! YUCKY!

Enjoy!

It's a good thing each creature on earth is here for a purpose. He is just doing his job but hope he does clean his plate like a good boy.

Doni said...

That's hysterical! And to think you even thought of getting pictures of it!!! AND TO POST THEM!!! I'm just laughing over here! Those birds are horribly ugly...I guess so we'll leave them alone and let them do their job!! Keep up the fun times!!
Blessings, Doni

I absolutely cant stand turkey vultures....yuck. But they are the garbage collectors so I guess that just goes to show everything has a purpose!
