    Love this shot and perfect title!!! May be laughing most of the day with those expressions and pose! Maybe they could scare off crime before it starts!

    That’s a little unnerving, isn’t it?
    Great one, Valerie

    Brilliant portrait, ucumari. I’ve never seen this many animals who are occupying one enclosure this alert. Did they blink for you? The true test of a photographer’s reputation at any Zoo is whether they blink while you’re trying to take their picture. Judging from this photo you must be popular indeed. Wonderful work.

    It is creepy when you’ve got a whole flock of vultures looking at you. Several years ago, a flock of at least thirty turkey vultures invade the trees at my parrents farm. Talk about getting the shivers!

    Wonderful shot. They might be the beauty queens of the vulture world.

    Hmm, typical vulture beaks are more like eagle beaks on steroids. I looked up "red-kneed security bird" but that wasn’t it, either. White-bellied stork paid off, though (I think) – try a google image search.

    Looks like all eyes were on YOU ; -))
    great shot Valerie!! Cool title!!
    It was a thrill for me to see the endangered Wood Storks in Florida this February…it sounds like they may be "more endangered" if new agriculture bills are passed in Florida.

    These birds always creep me out when I walk through the open room. I also fear the fly-by droppings that have happened … luckily I’ve avoided them thus far. *fingers crossed*

    Yikes !! I too thought they were vultures. Creepy aren’t they? You did manage to get some great photos though.
