Three Tenors




It's cold out, and a few snow flakes have been flying through the air today.
There's no doubt, however, that it's spring; the wild turkey gobblers are displaying for the hens,
although, for the most part, the hens seem underwhelmed.




The big birds pivot slowly, almost on tip-toe, flaunting their beauty, 
catching the light on their iridescent feathers...




and then, all together, lean forward and let loose their loud and distinctive gobble.

Move over Pavarotti.

Oh, my goodness, these shots are just priceless! I just showed my fellow turkey-admirer and he agrees -- you are so fortunate to be able to see this sort of thing, and to capture it with camera to share with the rest of us is wonderful!

What an amazing sight! I've only managed to 'shoot' turkeys once, they can move out of range quickly. But these guys had other things on their minds... superb shots! Thank you Connie, for coming by sharing your creative photography on the Weekly Top Shot, #171!
