Do you see that tiny speck coming in from the left? My son did and knew exactly what to do. He came and got me . . . good birds are worth disturbing mom. Plus, he had a plan!
Where there is one vulture, perhaps there are more. There was no time to waste. He flew (ha!) into action. Or rather inaction.
He knew that Vultures like dead meat so the threw himself to the ground and pretended to be dead! That’s me boy!
As you can see, it worked! He lured in a total of six. My husband was saying useful things like, “If they land, don’t let them start peeking out your eyeballs!”
They rode around on the warm air currents of the late afternoon before flying off into the sunset, sans 9 year old boy eyeballs!
And, what a beautiful sunset it was, too.
view . . . vulture
carcass on the ground
may not be as dead as it seems
call your friends to check
there’s no death
