Wild animals are a great challenge to photograph. Always unpredictable with rich payoffs.

Wild Turkey

Postby Duck » Sat Jun 04, 2016 3:03 am

...and not the drinking type. :D

Yesterday morning I was rudely awoken by the loud warbling of a group of wild turkeys in our back yard. This morning they were back, quieter this time. I was also up and about so I grabbed my camera. I took a total of seven images, mostly through a screened window, and this one came out the best. It's one of three turkeys that were grazing in my yard.

One shot would prevent it from waking you again and put a meal on the table! :D

Don't tempt me ;)
I had deep fried wild turkey once. It was actually quite good. It made for a skinnier bird but no one was complaining.

A very fine tom, indeed! Nice catch! Around here they are people shy because they get shot at so about the only way I can get them is on my wildlife camera. Would love to give you a thumbs up, but for some reason I do not have any thumbs showing.
