Though we have a flock of turkey’s that live across the river, and often come over for a bite to eat, they never bring their children for a visit. Thus, the first time I saw a baby turkey, In Nature, was driving home from the Ogunquit Theater, with Lois. We pulled over, and I tried to photograph the babies with their mother, but she would have none of that, her children were not going to sit for a portrait, and off they went into the woods.
I of course have had hope that our turkey’s would one day bring their babies, but alas, it was while driving in northern Florida, that I found a wild turkey, with her children, who was willing to let me snap a few pictures – I wonder if that is because they are not hunted, in the area, where I found them?
When I spotted the mom, I pulled over and thought I might get at least one photograph I could use, I never imagined she would let me get so close.
Thus, we have baby turkeys!
