Skywatch Friday-Man Made vs Natures Own

An airplane that flys past my house every Saturday

A Turkey Vulture that flys past my house ever Saturday



I prefer that Turkey Vulture myself. I love to watch it soar in the sky and wish I could be up there with it looking at my tiny house with the air guiding me along. If only I had wings.

Not being an engineer, I find the bird much more beautiful than the plane. Lovely detail you've captured of the feathers.

Lynne said...

I'd rather watch the Turkey Vulture too.
I love TV's!

Mildred said...

Amazing picture of the bird in flight. Hope you have a great afternoon.

Well done!

Vulture wins, hands down, for me, too! They're quieter, prettier, and instead of polluting the environment, they actually clean it up...

Very cool shots!!

Nothing compares to a bird in flight--so quiet and free.

Ida said...

Great pictures, both of them. :)

you're very observant - and quick to capture the flying things!! Nice shots.

I see airplanes everyday. I can hardly wait to see my first Turkey Vulture! Lucky you!

Ruth said...

Great comparison shots. I don't think the Turkey Vulture could deliver me to a sunny beach in Mexico, so I will count both as favourites.

Well Kim---I guess we need both.. I love the birds and would love to see a Turkey Vulture... But--we need those big airplanes also I guess...

For me, I'd much rather see the vulture.

Hugs,
Betsy

Ah, great photos. Well done!

Shellmo said...

You are so clever w/ both of these photos! Excellent!

ShySongbird said...

Absolutely no contest! The natural bird wins hands down every time, very clever juxtaposition though.

All good wishes from the UK.

Such a terrific comparison. I love both photos but my fave would have to be the vulture too.

I hope the Turkey Vulture was not following the plane!
