Turkey In The Straw (Grass)

Turkey In The Straw (Grass)

This wild turkey was moving through the grass in the rurals west of Eugene and probably thought I couldn't see it. You know how dumb turkeys are! In fact, it has been said that to call another person a 'turkey' is one of the highest insults. They just ain't too smart! :)
But I love them anyway, and think they are sort of pretty.

Very nice lighting and beautiful colors. Not very well camouflaged for this, at least for our eyes. "V"

Wonderful light and composition. I like how the turkey stands out yet blends into the grass.

Lovely shot in those pretty grasses, Vern. We have about 15 that come and eat on our front lawn halfway regularly.
