On the Road in Texas: Black Vultures Eating

Some photos of black vultures doing what they do best - cleaning up road kill.
I took these photos the last time I was in Texas - heading into the Hill Country out of San Antonio. These black vultures, about 20 feet off of a two-lane road with a 55 MPH speed limit, were enjoying a deer that had been recently hit.
They allowed me to approach to about 30 feet then flew into the trees.
As I approached the trees, they took off - most likely to return to the deer as soon as I drove off.
