This afternoon on the way back from airport Alice Springs just before the first 
hills coming into town there was a black breasted buzzard floating around like 
a butterfly.  I am sure others have noticed the similarity between the black 
breasted buzzards flight and the flight of butterflies previously, but this is 
the first time it has struck me.  The short tail, wings in a V and most 
noticeably the sudden lifting in elevation without any apparent change in wing 
position are very reminiscent of a butterfly.

A most enjoyable interlude.
