This may be way off topic, but thought I'd share a few shots of some wild turkeys that were hanging around our yard today. The Tom turkey put on quite a show for the ladies. The ladies generally ignored him, pecking around in the woods for food, then relaxed in our veggie garden.

I love the wild turkeys. Around here they come every morning when I feed the horses, to get some food.  My Tom, a burbon red, had to hens that came over to his enclosure and drove him wild.  He would do his dance for them.  A man down the road sits on his front step and they come over to eat from his hand.  By me they come right into the horse barn.  A surveyor from the gas company was over marking for a gas pipe and had himself a ball calling my turkey.

Beautiful pictures! We have wild turkeys here too, but I rarely see a Tom. One year, they came strutting through the yard on Thanksgiving morning. Silly birds.
