The turkeys just wander "wildly" through the place at will and it's a real treat to be that close to them. We have taken pictures, but nothing like this. I guess this is the difference between a "good camera" and a "fantastic camera." Or maybe it's the lens. I don't know.
Dale & Judy Truit lived around the corner from us when we were in our old house here. He is an incredible photographer! I hope this is going to show up as well in blogland as in my email!
My pictures didn't show the different colors on their heads. But here's the story that came along with the pictures.
Dale Truitt went up to Ramsey Canyon last weekend to see if he could see anything to photograph. After walking around and climbing the hill a ways, he returned to the car with no pictures and was quite disappointed. While standing in the parking lot talking to some people, he saw this develop out of the corner of his eye. Right next to the parking lot! There were 11 tom turkeys strutting with no hens to be seen. He wasn't so disappointed after all!
Aren't these great pictures? And aren't these turkeys fabulous???
