Daily Photos from Florida's Capital City
Nice painting. I like exhibits that let you take photographs.
Interesting piece. It tells a story about nature without being too graphic. Have I mentioned how much I love Audubon? :)
We have seen the vultures make off with the last scraps of meat on deer killed by automobiles. Thankfully, they do a good job.
Great paintings - most galleries here don't allow photography.
Looks like something I'd see on my walk.
Vultures get a bad rap; they are quite interesting birds and they're always natures clean-up crew.
I like vultures. I think they are interesting birds.However, I am not so fond of Audubon as he killed and stuffed thousands of birds for his paintings. Seems a little cruel to me. :(
Vultures are impressive.
I know Halcyon--it does seem cruel. Since he didn't have access to a camera in those days, I guess it seemed like the only way to get an accurate depiction of the birds. It is sad.
Boy, do I have mixed emotions when looking at this painting. I didn't realize Audubon killed so many birds. Something wrong with that picture!We had some vultures flying over us on the golf course this morning. I knew my game was bad but I didn't think it was dead. Whew!Vultures are wonderful critters and a real help to all of us and the environment!
Dramatic painting!thanks so much for sharing!Léia
Their not to pretty but they keep the roads nice and clean.be well, be happy,Pam
I recall "The Red Pony" ending.
It is a good painting, Lois, but it is also pretty gory. I think he left out some of the mess that the vultures inflicted on the deer or it would have been worse.
