Vulture Visit

Yesterday when we got home from church, we saw a lot of large, slowly gliding birds. Ah! Turkey vultures! There were a bunch of them and they were flying low, right over our car!!

I ran inside, grabbed my camera, ran back outside and tried taking some photos. It was a bit difficult because the sun was so bright and right overhead :P But that didn't matter - I got to see these quiet birds up close right over my house *squee* I had prayed for an opportunity like this a few weeks ago and yesterday it was answered :)


I want a book about vultures, including the kind that eat fruit, but I haven't been able to find any -_-

Also, a thought came to mind this morning. I wonder if the clean and unclean distinctions in Scripture point to the way things used to be in the garden vs the way things are in a world broken by sin? I'm not sure, but want to explore that a little more sometime.
