It's Spring - The Boys are Showing Off!

As signs of spring slowly emerge, the snow melts once again, some days are warmer and the lot of rain.  The male wild turkeys are displaying their tail feathers in a dance to attract the females.  This photograph was taken with my Canon 7D Mark II and a Sigma 150-600 mm lens set at 300 mm.  The shutter speed was set at 1/400 second, the aperture was set at f6.3 and the ISO was set at 6400 in the low light of the morning.

An unusual site this morning, a young deer and a wild turkey looking like a couple.  Well, not really, just happen to look that way in my photograph.  This photograph was taken with my Canon 7D Mark II camera and a 400 mm lens.  The shutter speed was set at 1/160 second, the aperture was set at F5.6 and the ISO at 2000 in the low morning light.

Wild turkeys where reintroduced to this area a many years ago.  They now seen frequently inlarge families of 6 to 19 birds.  This year I followed a family of about 12 turkeys throughout the summer and into the fall.  This photograph was take by my Canon 7D camera and a 400 mm lens.  The shutter speed was set to 1/800 second, the aperture was set at f6.3 and the ISO was set at 5000 due to the low light.
