Vulture Eclipse

This week is the second lunar eclipse of a series of four this year. I don't think that I am going to make the observation this time. In lieu, here is a "vulture eclipse."

As the nearly full moon was rising this evening, I watched fifty or so Turkey Vultures gliding overhead making their way to their roosts nearby along the San Gabriel River. This one glows orange in the light of the setting sun. Image composed from two exposures with same exposure parameters but different focus points. Danielle quipped that most people try to pose Bald Eagles in front of the moon ... yeah, but we got vultures, lots of them!
