I managed to get pretty close to these guys who were more interested in eating than fleeing for their lives as they usually do. Taken with Canon 7D and 70-200 f4 L lens
Hello and WelcomeI’m an amateur photographer and have been photographing wildlife since 2008I hope you enjoy your visit.Jim
I see at least one of them made it past Thanksgiving! Nice portrait Jim.
Thanks Dan….now who in their right mind would eat such an ugly bird like that? LOL

First time I see one up close. It’s both ugly and beautiful at the same time….Fantastic colours and a gentle sadness in his eye….thanks for sharing.
This attractive fellow looks moderately intelligent. This individual was more than moderately belligerent, so I opted to shoot him through the windshield! You’ve got a wonderful catch of the bird that lost out to the Bald Eagle as the US’s bird-of-choice, Jim. Ben Franklin would’ve approved.
Thanks Sheila…I heard about the turkey being nominated, somehow it just wouldn’t be the same
Come to think of it, yours appears to be a hen, so would be of the less-pugnacious gender. Unless you happened to be a Tom rather than a Jim, in which case she would have ignored you, or pecked you silly.
I think they found a soulmate, Jim
