from their perch, they can see the St. Joseph's North Hospital in Tampa [insert demonic laugh here]

although it is in Tampa, the park is owned by the city of St. Petersburg from a time long ago when municipalities bought up land farther and farther away for the purpose of securing water sources. Very little development as a park and trees are left to their own life cycles so there are many of these pine trees that are a photographers dream

Foreboding, yes, but also very striking in how the birds appear.

Great composition!

Thank you!

Black vultures creep me out for some reason. Don't ask me why, they just do. Give me turkey vultures any day!
