About This Image

A wild tom turkey, all puffed up and strutting his stuff, with some very interested hens closely following.

Thanks for your comment, Karen. Actually, there were about 25 turkeys in the flock, with three toms doing their thing, but this guy was the most enthusiastic and apparently the most successful. The flock was about a hundred yards away, so it was hard to see exactly what was going on bare-eyed. I was shooting hand-held from the car with a 300mm lens, so I shot a couple dozen pictures hoping to get at least one without too much shake. This was significantly cropped, about 1/4 of the original image, and sharpened in PSP. Wish I could afford a 500mm IS lens for situations like this! Bruce

He seems to have the advantage with no competitors in sight. Great shot.
