    Here are a few of Turkey Vultures, aka "Buzzards" we saw at Horseshoe Bend on Beaver Lake, AR. They are HUGE creatures, and the "whoosh, whoosh, whoosh" when they fly overhead is pretty cool :)

    If you're in Death valley and hear "Beep beep" behind you, pull over and let this guy by.

    Here's a rare sighting in Western Massachusetts. A bobcat sitting along the brushline and then walking along the brushline before heading back into the woods. These were taken in our backyard.

    really enjoying this thread! thanks for all the great shots so far. a few of my own:

    an alligator my SIL and I walked up on scouting a hunting trip. Oct 2011, Ossabow Island WMA GA

    a Barred Owl that landed about 15 feet from our camper at Lock & Dam Park, Rome GA April 09

    have to admit that alligator was my first time EVER walking up on one in the wild. i actually had it happen again on that hunting trip in a different spot.

    My favorite bird...took me a while to get close enough for this shot.

    This orphan grew up behind our house. Unfortunately two of the kits were killed by predators, but we're pretty certain that at least one made it to maturity because we would see it out back on occasion.

    This little hummingbird got trapped in our garage, and my hubby revived it with sugar water when it became hypoglycemic and collapsed. He freed it outside when it could fly. :) Pic quality is lousy but it's a cell phone...
