Today we get a shot of a typical large bird trying to take out Canada’s version of “Air Force One” in a shot I call “Vulture Vs Canadian Government.”

Final Thoughts

I took this shot six months ago, and didn’t notice the bird in the photo until today.

Normally I would just clone it out, but the birds defiance of the Canadian Government needs to be observed here.

It is tax season after all.

 

The Sigma 150-600 Contemporary is sharp enough to make out that Canada is “The True North, Strong and Free…”
