(all pictures, including my new header, were taken with my Fujifilm s100fs)
See the way she looks at me? Even my husband doesn't look at me like that. Lily and I have a very strong bond. One I didn't think I would ever have with a dog, but she came into my life and proved me wrong. I'm thankful for that on a daily basis. I love this dog with all my heart.
As per the norm I dropped my daughter off at work and decided to go take some new pictures. Since we just ushered in another snow storm last night AND I have a new camera I knew it would be a perfect day for pictures. Now bare with me, these are some of the very first pictures I've taken.
Heck, I was almost past the driveway to this house when I realized there were a flock of Wild Turkeys underneath the pine tree! (I know, I'm really excited) Stopping on the side of the road right after a snow storm is NOT a great idea but hey, there were Turkeys!!!
It's difficult to tell from pictures but wild Turkeys are really big! Up to 45" tall with wing spans up to 57". For some reason the camera seems to take away pounds instead of add them ... unlike it would for you and me. Maybe it's just that black is slimming, I don't know. I think there were even Wild Turkeys in the tree but it was hard to tell.
What they were eating, who knows. Seeds from pine cones? Maybe someone threw some bird seed out? Not sure, but after they all left several Blue Jays instantly took their place.
Once Turkeys are on the move they are gone pretty quick! Those legs can move! Wonder if the people in the house saw them?
In our area we have a plentiful supply of Wild Turkeys. I can't tell you how many times the girls have come home and said the bus had to stop to let the Turkeys cross the street. LOL! However, it's been a while since I've seen any. Right now they are pretty docile and basically just want something to eat, but come Spring you better not mess with the male Wild Turkey, as my Aunt Millie will testify too.
