Wild Turkey Time

I heard some hens on the other side of a pond I was close to so decided to check it out. I found some Tom's that were also interested in the hens talking. I was pretty lucky to be where I was as it looked to me like the Tom's would go thru some sunlight in between the trees on their way to check out the hens. Used a dead tree to set the camera on and now all I have to do is wait for them to come by.





I think he heard the shutter and came in closer to check out the noise.





I like the way the sun brought out all the different colors.

I would guess and it is only a guess but I imagine their mothers think they are beaufiful. Thanks for the kind comment and for taking the time to look.

Great captures Roger :!:

I have a few images of turkeys although they were always running the other direction. You must have managed to get fairly close, greatstalking job.

Thanks for sharing

Hi Jeff, I was pretty lucky. When I heard the hens from across the pond I sat down in the trees and started looking around with my binoculars and sure enough I spotted the Toms coming towards me along the creek is was obvious they where interested in all the hen talk. The wind was in my face when looking at the pond so all I had to do is wait cause it looked like they would pass between me and the pond. About 1/2 hour later they were in the right spot.

Thanks for looking and for commenting.
