toms

all week i've been hearing turkey calls from high up in the woods. then this afternoon, there he was, gobbling and strutting his stuff for the ladies right in my own back yard. and he even brought a buddy with him! i grabbed for the camera and the telephoto lens and began to shoot out the window so as not to spook them. and then i remembered: just a few hours earlier, i had inserted the screens back in all the windows. so this shot is not clear since it's through the mesh of the screen...but i thought you might enjoy seeing him anyway, in all his puffed up glory!

What an amazing pic. To bad about the screen, but the shot is still lovely.

He looks absolutely gorgeous! I wish I could see wildlife like this but I am always by so many people that all I can see are squirrels or an occasional stray cat : )
