Wild Turkeys

 Wild Turkey

A week ago on a walk down a woodland path, my husband and I came upon a flock of approximately two dozen wild turkeys. They were way more interested in scratching the earth for bugs and worms than they were in me and my camera.

Another wild turkey

And yet another wild turkey!

I can't help but think of Thanksgiving dinner. ;)

Seriously, beautiful images! Very nice.

How lucky for you, our wild turkeys are so skittish of people I could never get a shot of them this close.

Great images. I saw one on our golf course last year but it ran away. I guess I shouldn't have yelled "Thanksgiving!"

I used to work with a bunch of turkeys but they were all wearing suits!

I love wild turkeys but I have never come up on them on foot. Great shots.

They are amazing plump and stupid. They leave LOTS of crap on my lawn. hahahaha

Judy said...

great shots!! Around here, the wild turkeys are far more cautious!! They don't make a fuss about it, just drift into the woods as you approach...

Dianne said...

Wow, these are really great turkey shots! aka a turkey shoot. LOL They have made their way into our area too but I don't know what they do with all this snow.

Coo photographs, EG. When I lived near Boston College decades ago, we had turkeys walking through the back yard every fall. Pheasants, too.

I haven't seen any wild turkeys around here in ages, I think we are too out in the open here.

Great close ups on this turkey.

Your photography is great here, but turkeys are just the homeliest of creatures!

Randy said...

It's almost like they posed for you.

Madge Bloom said...

They're a bit skittish and sometimes elusive... you did great here!

George said...

These are great portraits of the turkeys.

Miss Kodee said...

Great photos! Turkeys really are awkward little guys.

Wild turkeys are so fun to watch.

see you there! said...

Such colorful birds. We occasionally see them when we are up in the mountains but never get that close.

nice catch. :) I hope the only way you shoot them was with the camera. :)

We had the kids over last Saturday. The city boy and his girlfriend were here, too.
GF wandered and looked out the back door at the 12 turkeys. Holy smoke, she was surprised! Our are huge!

How neat to see a whole flock, and better yet, get several pictures of them! I guess they were happy they survived Thanksgiving. :)
