You often times never know what will cross your path or whose path you may cross. The first occurrence this morning was a cast (group of vultures) of Black Vultures. The tree they were in was ideal for their purpose. It provided safety for their evening roost, it gave them vision advantages with the height of its branches and it gave them total access to the morning sun. Seeing this many perched at one time was a first for me. When the sun came out from the fog and clouds, they turned their backs to it and stretched out their wings and soaked up the early morning heat. There were Barn Swallows skimming the tops of the field grasses picking up insects; one decided to stop for a moment. A little further away than I would like but the gift was offered so I accepted and took a couple of photos. The Field Sparrows are frequent path crossers but rarely on their own same path. I took advantage and snapped a few photos. Interruptions often times will alter a path. Like a sound, a tune, a Yellow Warbler turned my head and allowed me a couple photos. Then I noticed something that was all around me almost throughout all my morning trek, Grasshoppers. These guys were everywhere. So… I took a few photos of them too. Then an Eastern Kingbird took advantage of a field perch. His selection had an excellent degree of luxury.
