I had one today, while I was sitting alone out in a field over looking some tidal wetlands, working on a timelapse photography project. I heard some footsteps in the grass behind me, and it turns out I had a hungry visitor. I guess I had been sitting as still as death, because it thought I was lunch. Here’s a teaser video, as I work on the editing-

It liked your boot, that’s for sure.

Wow that’s crazy! I presume you have been a little less passive in other areas:)
That’s pretty cool. :)

Mmm rubbery boot! You were brave not to freak out, that beak looks pretty sharp.
That was one hungry buzzard!
I love serene turkey vultures. I’d be so excited I’d have to hold my breath! We rescued one on our property that was injured and took it into Bird Rescue . . . sadly he didn’t make it but we had an up close experience. Cannot wait to see the edited video!
How exciting to see one so close, but a bit on the creepy side!
