Thanksgiving Turkeys: "Don't put those heads down, today!"
Posted By: weatherwise2, 11-22-2007, 07:08 AM

I took this picture yesterday afternoon. The day before Thanksgiving in the United States, and you know what our traditional dish is. It seems the upright one might be saying to the others to watch out.

I was trying to chase these guys down between my yard and the next, staying behind trees and fences. Unfortunately taken with a hand held 80-320 Pentax lens and I had to open the ISO to 1000 to get a faster freeze time and the focus is not perfect. Thanks goodness for the shake reduction. No, none wound up on today's plate.

Happy Thanksgiving to all.

Very nice, particularly given the challenging circumstances. They're so perfectly lined up! So it's not perfectly sharp, so what - it's funny and appropriate to the day. Happy Thanksgiving!
