Photo of the week: So, what do you want to do?

I am in southern oregon right now, visiting my family.  Yesterday and today, while jogging through some woods, I saw three big vultures.  Part of a deer is decomposing and they are munching away.  I said they were big–the biggest has a wingspan of about my height, and I’m 6’3.

It’s not the biggest vulture I have ever seen, however.  About this time last year, while hiking in Nepal, I saw a vulture that would have rivaled the monster from Clash of the Titans.  The below picture was taken from several hundred feet away and you can still get a sense of his mass and size.  Yikes!
