OK this tail shot didn't come easy this morning, as he was not at all very helpful to me. He came in with the rest for some corn but no strutting. After he had his fill he wandered out into the pasture lot and I had a small zoom on so I had to go back and get the 500 + a 1.4 and off my monopod I took these two. The fan (#2) is a FF and I could not fit him all in so I choose showing the tail plumage as I was ask for a tail fanned out. I just cropped out some of the sides. The same with the head but I did bump it up to 25% for cropping. I hope you enjoy

I know you were going for the tail shot Lou, but I really like that first one. Cute little guy.
Thanks Baxter, yes someone ask me for a tail faned out and I was trying to get just this but you are right about the first one. A youngster and well I kind of like the way they look but so many people don't. I really like the turkeys and I love haveing them around my place just about all day. I got a great head shot this morning of the big Tom. I'll post it a bit later.

Impressive fan on that boy!!!
Thanks Gretchen for the look and yes he is quite the good looking Tom for sure. Amazing bird the wild turkey. could have been our national bird but lost by one vote in 1789 to the bald eagle. Was Ben Franklyn's favorite bird and he pushed hard to get it to be the national bird.
