Buzzard Roost

They greeted us with wings spread wide on a drizzly, overcast day in 2007.

We had driven to Van Zandt County early that morning to visit the the Duwali monument, trying to capture a bit of the mystery of that place where the Texas Cherokee had battled and lost their war with the Texas militia.

As we headed back to the main highway, the sun began to break through the clouds and we saw the buzzards amid the powerlines.

There being nowhere to pull off and no traffic out there in the woods, I stopped in middle of the road to grab a shot.

As if on cue, they raised their wings to soak up the warmth from the morning sun.

This is the shot I snapped.
