I have been trying to get a photo of a Wild Turkey for some time, but have found them to be elusive, or the lighting wasn’t good. I’ve even had them in my back yard. I had frequently seen them at the spot where I finally got the photo. However, as soon as they noticed me they started to take off for the woods. I had to take off in a run while preparing the camera to get close enough to get a picture. As the photos show, the Turkeys just stroll away. Seeing them from the road and getting the pictures and back in the car was no more than 5 minutes. It’s good that they are a large bird.
