Wild Turkeys

  1. Not the greatest image of these Wild Turkeys but they were hard to get close to. The birds were moving fast and I just had time for one grab shot. We don't see many turkey shots posted to this forum so I thought I would share this one. D2H, 70-200mm lens.

  2. Thanks for posting Gordon...never saw a wild turkey not wrapped in plastic.

  3. I know what you mean Anthony. Course the ones wrapped in plastic have puffed up breasts and can't run so fast.

    Hi, Gordon - Nice capture for a quick shot! BTW, the plastic wrapped ones are a little tastier.
     
  5. Nice shot.

    I am kind of partial to the Wild Turkey that comes in the bottle over the plastic wrapped bird. :D

    To much of the bottled WT will make you gobble and strut just like the bird, at least that is what I have been told. :lol:

    Actually Gordon, these are very good shots of this hard to find bird. At least around here, they are very skittish. You just needed your 300 2.8 + 1.4 TC. 8)
     
  7. Great capture Gordon... I've seen a few but only on a bottle of whiskey... :lol:

    Yesterday I saw a pack of pheasants... but didn't manage to get any shots, too fast and too furious... :shock:
     
  8. I definitely needed my 300 f2.8 lens Frank. The problem was I came on them unexpectedly (about 10 or 12 or them) and they took off running. I caught the last two as they went across this clearing. One shot only.
     
  9. Thanks Russ, Don and Panos. There seems to be a lot of calls for the bottled variety of Wild Turkey. :lol: :lol: :lol: You can see where your minds are and it is not on birds. :) I appreciate your comments.
