Wild Turkey by Jim Cumming


Available to buy on…

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

    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
