This should be the last of the turkeys. Sorry for so many. But they are a very shy bird and to even get this close is something God only allows. I did however get my babies. That is the reason for following her. They are so darn cute. Please view larger to get the full view. Wisconsin

    I did so enjoy this image! We have lots of wild turkeys in our area, I’d not thought to get any image though because they can be rather feisty and in this case, very protective. There is a local story about a woman, driving a truck, that stopped to let some turkeys go across the road. The next thing she knew a few of them had flown into the back of her pickup truck and she wasn’t able to get them out. She drove all the way to town to get help to rid herself of her turkey habitation.
    This is a very cool image, as little ones do, they are scattered behind mom in disarray. Beautiful shot, Kat! Dee
