Wild Turkey(Prettier In Lightbox)

For two years, I have endeavored to capture a wild Turkey with my camera. I have a few friends who've managed it so brilliantly, and though my shots were not as brilliant, I was thrilled to finally find some willing to allow for my stalking behavior. There were two males whom I followed on this day, and both well hidden in tall grass, so the stalking was challenging, and the lighting not ideal for the Turkey plumage, but I enjoyed their presence so much! Gobbling for their ladies, strutting after them, and quickly stopping to pose before hurriedly chasing them down again. Charming creatures with a good deal of soul in their eyes.
