[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
These turkeys are part of the group of about a dozen or so birds I some times see in or near a particular field near where I live.
The lighting was in my favour for the first time ever, with the sun directly behind me - it was about 4:30 PM. (I usually see them in the morning, with the sun behind them!)
I apologize as the shooting data was stripped - but if I can locate the originals I shall post shutter speed etc.
Cropped, slightly sharpened and lightened.

excellent compo nice shot

Hi Lissa,
I think your picture has a lot of potential. You did a good job capturing these difficult subjects. IMO your picture would be more dynamic if the top and bottom were cropped making this a long thin pic emphasizing the Turkeys. I did a workshop to try to show my vision. I hope you like it...;-)
Thanks for sharing,

  • Great

Merci Lissa!


Hi Lissa! Love the golden wings--this is a terrific shot of very wary birds! Well done, and I like Dave's workshop too. Linda
