Ummmm, guess I was interrupting something. Wild turkeys on Casper Mountain, central Wyoming. Canon 50D, f5.6, 1/640, ISO500, focal length 330mm.

Wow, what a shot!!! What lens were you using, the 100-400mm? Awesome image!
Hi Kim, yep, 100-400! I know there are wild turkeys down your way… do you get to see some from time to time? AMR
I had to share this on facebook; hope you don’t mind:)
:-))), love it! Thanks! AMR
WONDERFUL snag!! Gives new meaning to ‘get off my back’. Poor little lassie.
LOLOLOL, I will always think of you when I hear “get off my back” now, Lee-Anne! I was stunned watching this huge tom with all of his weight on her! AMR
We have quite a few wild turkeys, but they are almost always faster than I am:) I have a few pics, but nothing amazing like this one!
Got lucky! I’ve visited this flock of turkeys a few times, and nothing like this before! AMR
I think I saw these on the Ed Sullivan Show back in the ’60s. He also spun plates on his head. Great shot!
:-))))))! Thanks for stopping by, Sheila! AMR
Amazing capture! He is enormous!
Trish, you ARE RIGHT, he was enormous! AMR
great capture, you must have been all ready to go. From what I’ve seen they don’t exactly go the Tantric route. I keep turkeys and have never managed to get a shot like this. lol
Hi v, I happened to be shooting this flock of turkeys and was amazed at my good luck when I saw this huge tom going for it! Thanks so much for dropping by! AMR
Didn’t you have the presence of mind at least to offer them a cigarette?
PER laughing too!
