[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
I was extremely lucky that I was able to get this shot! It's even harder to get close to Wild Turkeys than it is to Red Tail Hawks. Notice how I got them to pose for me. All looking in the same direction and with one leg raised.

I really like this shot Andy. They are very hard to get close too. The foot following is priceless. Nice POV and clarity with the shot. P.S I purchased a 55-200mm IS lens today

Nice capture of the three jakes. I know first hand that getting close to wild turkeys is extremely hard, so my hats off to you for this shot.
Like the sharpness you were able to obtain, even though I can see from your photo that the birds were booking it for some other place. Love the same pose that they all have!!
