Today’s mid-day monsoon storm may have cause the turkey vultures, who roust along the wash, to come back early. Normally, we only see them in the morning and late in the afternoon. I counted ten and within thirty minutes only four remained. The most I have counted in the summer is 24. The fall and spring migration can bring over 100 staying over night. Since I was down by the wash photographing water running in the normally dry wash, I could pass up photographing these big birds in the changing early afternoon light.

Our community of Tanuri Ridge is located on the north side of the Tanque Verde wash, normally very dry, but not the last couple of days. There are trails along the wash where people walk and ride horses. This morning I went walking along the wash, which had some water. After afternoon rains I went back down to the wash with my camera and took the above photos (August 19, 2014).

Yeah you’ll see my smile looks out of place
Look little bit closer, it’s easy to trace
The tracks of my tears”

But lend me your heart and I’ll just let you fall
Lend me your eyes I can change what you see
But your soul you must keep,…
