_MG_2649 Late afternoon turkey stroll

NOT through my window, but outside. Ricky's easy-to-interpret "There's something going on outside" bark alerted me to their visit to the lawn across the street, so I grabbed my 7D with the 70-200 f/4L on it and stealthily climbed the hill from my front door as they walked out of range. I love the way the low sun brought out their beautiful feather colors.

The look almost like bronze statues, must be delightful to see them walking by!
Wonderful capture of this gang!

They look like a platoon of soldiers on a march!

My goodness! I've never seen so many turkeys in one spot! (Except in the grocery store freezer...) They're quite lovely. Definitely a great opportunity for a photo shoot!
