“Stranger in the Woods” meets the Turkeys


1/400 sec at f/16, iso 1600, 200mm (70-200 series ii canon lense)  with Canon 5d mark iii

I was photographing turkeys feeding this morning by the”Stranger in the Woods” snowman who had suddenly appeared in my backyard over night.The turkeys were not doing anything too exciting when my cell phone rang.   I had a devil of a time retrieving it from my blue jeans under my snowmobile suit.It was the snow removal person who was in the immediate area asking me if I wanted my drive plowed…even though there was not much snow I said yes knowing from past experience it would set the turkeys off calling and displaying.  Sure enough as soon as they heard the scraping blade they displayed and gobbled away!!!
