The Sun was on the "wrong side", but I could not resist not to photograph one of the beauties.

Very nice photos. I love the bokeh in the first one. Although I think it's just because of the feathers, it almost looks like it's swirling. That looks neat though. Gobble Gobble!

Some great shots of one very big turkey, as jst mentioned the bokeh on the first is wonderful with all the swirls and colors in the background.

Nice job,

Thank you all for the comments. Turkey is very big and aggressive. I took photo over ~1.8 m wire fence.

Well it certainly won't win any modeling contests with this photo but it's a good shot. They're so ugly...yet they taste so wonderful
