[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
These three wise birds traveled afar seeking sustenance. I managed to catch them all in basically the same pose. I guess this could be another in my series of "trinity" photos... a trinity of turkeys... :)

I was amazed how my camera's sensor was able to capture such detail in both the highlights and the shadows under such adverse conditions (it was snowing)... this is not an HDR image... just some minor PP work in Photoshop CS2.

Hello Larry,
A nice shot of these three hens as they search for food in the heavy snow. Excellent exposure even though you had all the white BG to deal with. You managed to capture good detail and color, which isn't easy under these conditions.
Would have been great if the metal post wasn't in the frame, but sometimes you just have to accept what your presented with. Well done!

great triplet capture, TFS Ori
