A Moment of Zen: Egyptian Vulture in 82 Frames

Grab a cup of coffee and sit back for your moment of Zen.

Now that you’ve climbed a harrowing 1,100 meters up this mountain, put down your pack and soak in the 360-degree views. Up here, there’s nothing but sky, rock, and birds. What’s that? An Egyptian Vulture! Quick! Get your camera! Get steady! This is perfect light. Lay down on your back so you don’t shake. Now try to stop your heart from beating out of your chest. Look at that BIRD…an Egyptian Vulture, right here, right now. Closer than ever! Circling above your head, wondering at you wondering at him…priceless! Dunk that in the “best views ever” bank. Shake your head and thank your lucky stars, for the birds, for this moment, for your good fortune to be alive on this amazing green earth.
