    At least this morning I had some sun to play with. I went looking for Heron’s and came home with some Wild Turkeys that were willing to play.

    An added bonus to the morning was this Raptor I managed to get two shots of.

    They still live as WILD turkeys in your area???
    I don't think I have ever seen nor heard of any wild turkeys, all I know of are turkeys in turkey farms! Wow.
    That portrait is really an honour (well, all your photos honour every subject you photograph!) ... but actually and honestly ... only a mother can love that face, hm? ;)

    Eric I almost get the feeling you have one big trailer behind your car just full of wildlife that you can put anywhere and take a shot of :lol:

    #5 and the last one are my favorite two

    Nice ones Airic. Lafoto is right, they are one ugly looking bird, they can almost make vultures look pretty.
