My husband said there were probably vultures there circling something dead.
Of course, I wanted to investigate what kind of vultures they were and see if I could get their picture, because I am sick like that.
Sure enough, when we got closer, we saw they were huge turkey vultures.

A group sunbathing on the rocks:
But, the absolute neatest part of the day was when we noticed them doing something very peculiar.
It was very hot and humid the day we caught them out on the island.
As I said before, the sun wasn't helping me photograph where they were because it was close to sunset and the sun was on the wrong side of them.
But after many tries, at least I caught one picture of them doing it.
They would spread out their wings verrrrry wide, as if they were airing out their feathers and armpits and just sit in the tree with their wings spread.
It was bizarre.
But it made for a GREAT photo of them:
It gives you an idea of how big they really are when they have their wings spread.
Darn that sun! It was the wrong angle for pictures of it.
Did I mention that yet?...
