Wild Life

Now with that title you could suppose that I might be talking about my wild kids.  They have been rather ornery lately but that's not what today's post is about.

As I was eating dinner I was thinking about what I wanted to shoot today.  I could have taken a picture of my brother and his fiance at their shower but I didn't take the camera.  I could have taken a picture of the boys in the tub but there weren't any bubbles.  We were just about to sit down to read our scriptures for the day and I saw something weird out the back window.  The first thought I had was ostrich.  I knew that wasn't right.  I looked again and it was a wild turkey.  I grabbed the camera and shouted "There's a turkey in the yard!"  Everyone ran to the window to look out.  I opened the door as quietly as I could but that thing took off.  This was the best I could get.

Turkey on the Run

I think the turkey is faster than a goose, at least on feet.
