Is this an Omen?
About a mile from my house is a small town named Sardis that consists of two churches and a tire shop. As I was driving by the small Methodist Church one morning, as the sun was warming up and the dew was still fresh, I ran across a strange and ominous, yet at the same time, hilarious site. There was a group of Turkey Vultures gathered on top of the church to warm themselves and dry their wings in the sun. It was an interesting site to see around 20 vultures sitting a top a church and it’s steeple.
As I stopped to take the picture a older gentleman in a truck stopped to comment on the vultures and said that they had been their as long as he could remember. I commented on the oddity of it and said that I probably would not be attending the church. He laughed and then drove away with a smile on his face.
That next week when I drove by the vultures where circling above the church as people were gathering for Service. Are these people ignoring an omen, I thought… Then, as I drove in front of the church I read the bulletin that read “Pet & Animal Blessings”. I couldn’t control myself with laughter, as I thought back to a comment that a friend made about the topic, “Maybe they are Holy Roller Vultures”, she said. After seeing that sign, I thought, it may be true.
Enough rambling about the Holy Rolling Vultures. Check out some of my previous nature photos and of course the photos of the Vultures on the Church. Hope you enjoy them as much as I did!
