Black Vulture

You have just been knocked over on the road and you wake up to 9 vultures feeding on you! Well not me but a poor animal on the Road to El Cuyo, Mexico. I placed the microphones around this carcass as these vultures swooped in and began to feast. If you listen with headphones the flies get right into you!
