Juvenile Wild Turkey -K-5iis
Lens: Sigma 400mm F5.6 MC MF Camera: Pentax K-5iis Photo Location: Clarksburg, PA ISO: 400 Shutter Speed: 1/750s Aperture: F8

A juvenile wild turkey "hides" in the weeds bordering a freshly planted field. The 1980's Sigma 400mm f5.6 MC MF lens handled this backlighted situation pretty well just one stop down from maximum. I am amazed at the good shots I get with this much maligned lens. Plus, it cost me less than $50.

Nice capture! You got right down to his level, which makes it a very interesting photo with the grass.
