Sorry you're unwell, Lillian - get well soon.

Wonderful picture.

Expect to see it overhead shortly.

Get better soon Lillian it is definitely not fun being ill before Christmas.
Your image reminds me of my back fence and all the vultures sitting on it in Guine-Bissau. I grew quite fond of them.

Very, very good shot. I've not really seen a vulture flying before. They're usually standing, or scavenging on the ground.
I hope you feel better soon, Lillian. Smile
