Assassin Fly Robber Fly

Meet the Robber Fly or Assassin Fly. This one was following me around in a part of the High Desert we were at. Guy and the dogs of course did not see it, so when Guy asked what I was doing I told him what I found.

This rather large insect seamed to give off that don't mess with me attitude. I really do not know how to explain it. This insect had nothing to worry about I had no intentions of picking it up.

Turkey Vulture Feeding In The Ochoco Mountains

Meet the Turkey Vulture of North America. This is a graphic wildlife post. Please stop now if you do not like seeing wildlife feeding.

While up in the Ochoco Mountains here in Oregon we came across Turkey Vultures. Rather a common thing to see here in our part of Oregon. All together there was oh half a dozen or more vultures. With that said, the bird who stayed on their meal just was not all to thrilled about leaving, and who am I to argue?
