Feathered Fathers Day Gift

My Fathers Day started at 5:20am with my favorite wake-up call. A Wild Turkey! I sat up, looked outside the window, and we had eight of them just puttering around the yard less than 40 yards away. Took me a few to get dressed, get the camera, and by then they had puttered away farther. The shots were taken from about 100 yards away (zoom lenses are your friend!)

This just made my whole weekend. What an amazing morning in nature. Living up here in the boonies is almost like camping except with a roof and nice bed!
