Vulture Liftoff

A yummy  carcass on New Hackensack Rd near Wappinger Falls attracted a pair of vultures, one barely visible on the right just beyond Mary (clicky for more dots):

Vultures - New Hackensack Rd - 2018-08-27 - 0159

Vultures – New Hackensack Rd – 2018-08-27 – 0159

Half a second later, they’re both airborne and flapping in unison:

Vultures - New Hackensack Rd - 2018-08-27 - 0190

Vultures – New Hackensack Rd – 2018-08-27 – 0190

The one on the left swooped around the bushes and we both anticipated a collision, but it decided against returning to the carcass until we passed.

Bon appétit!
