Nah ...you're old.

Not that that's a bad thing.

Yesterday, there was a young deer in my front yard (still had spots), and I see adult deer on my property with some regularity. I don't mind that they wander through my yard, but I'd like them to leave my fucking rose bushes alone! They eat most of them down to sticks. GRRR.

Well living next to nature if you're a photographer/fishing boat deck hand, in Alaska. :D

Measuring 15 feet long and weighing in at a staggering 1,011.5 lbs, this giant alligator was pulled out of a river in Alabama on Saturday morning, becoming the largest ever caught. The woman who did so broke out her special pearl necklace to celebrate.

"hooked and then shot" would be more accurate than "caught."

But it's still impressive

Brother-in-law hooked it at 10:30 am Friday, presumably after fishing at least a little while. She shot it at 5 am on Saturday, then came the described difficulty getting back to their take-out point. So the family, 2 girls and 3 guys spent about 24 hrs in that 17 ft boat, most of it attached to a recalcitrant gator. :eyebrow: Can't wait for the encore.

Is that a Condor, or a vulture?

It's a turkey buzzard.

Apparently, he's shopping for roadkill:

Quote:

The turkey vulture is a scavenger and feeds almost exclusively on carrion.[4] It finds its food using its keen eyes and sense of smell, flying low enough to detect the gases produced by the beginnings of the process of decay in dead animals.
It was very exciting watching him fly. He was soaring overhead, pictures through the sunroof were not very successful, and repeatedly swooping along the road, just in front of us. I stopped the car and watched and took his picture. He was right there, like he was playing chicken (there's a chicken joke in there somewhere...).
