I sat quietly beside a Columbia River inlet at Cascade Locks for 5 hours. This vulture landed as close as I have ever been to one. With my 500mm lens, I got to see more detail, perhaps, than I wanted to. There is something about a creature that would prefer me dead that creeps me out.
This individual kept the Osprey I came to photograph from fishing. I therefore started pulling the trigger on it. It came in very close to me.
