Thanks Emily, there have been times I've had to decide whether or not to turn around to get the photo!

Last summer a friend and I had been on a road trip driving for 8 plus hours. We were exhausted and just wanted to get to our destination. At one point we passed a large tree full of turkey vultures. I really wanted to turn around and get a picture but the need to get to the destination outweighed getting the shot. So that is my long drawn out way of telling you I really like your pictures! Great photos! I've always wished I had stopped and got the photo!
