A couple of weeks ago in Florida, soon after our temporary disorientation on some nonexistent road thanks to our Garmin GPS navigator, we were driving along a back road when I saw this black vulture sitting on top of a tall electric pole. I quickly stopped the car, grabbed my camera and went out. Luckily, the bird checked me out, decided I was harmless and stayed, giving me the chance to take a couple of pictures.
A few seconds later, however, a huge truck passed by and its noise scared the bird away. We had to be on our way anyway.
