Oddly, the next day I was sketching some wildflowers when two turkey vultures came to roost in some nearby oaks. They seemed unconcerned while I drew the flowers but as soon as I moved around to sketch THEM, both took off even faster than the original three. They were closer so I was able to clearly see their astonishingly strange red heads that seem to emerge from their large bodies like something out of Men In Black. I hope I get the chance to draw more. They're really quite fascinating up close.
