Tom Turkey by H.Conley
Tom Turkey, a photo by H.Conley on Flickr.

Yesterday morning a Tom turkey and his brood of 4 females appeared where I feed the birds looking to have some breakfast. What an amazing opportunity to photograph another male in his majestic glory.

The sheen on his feathers and the sheer quantity of them really caught my eye in this image. Dragging the bottoms of the wing feathers on the ground is one of their bold moves asserting they are large and in charge.

I hope you truly enjoy this image as much as I do!
