Wordless Wednesday: Happy Thanksgiving

I took these photos at Litszinger Road Ecology Center (an Urban Nature Reserve) spring 2006.

Two Tom Turkeys (males) facing off.



Two Tom Turkeys trying to impress a Hen Turkey (female).
Can you see her? She's much smaller and to the right of the males.

The poor guys: all fluffed out and no place to go. The hen looks rather disinterested (so far). These sure are classic looking turkeys, though. Happy Thanksgiving.

I wonder if they ended up on someone's dinner table *lol* Happy Thanksgiving!

P.S. Today I am serving a classic Khmer dish at FoodTrips.

It's the same with any species isn't it?

Furred, feathered, two legged or four- the lengths males will go to impress a female...
Nice shots.

Hope you can stop by!
Have a wonderful Thanksgiving!

I love how thematic your photos are today. Can you tell how unimpressed the female turkey is with the two "toms"?!! Great shots!

We sometimes see turkeys around the house -- nice shots! Thanks for stopping by.

These are great shots of the turkeys. I hope you have a very happy thanksgiving.

They sure are beautiful, too bad they taste so darn good.

Happy WW and Happy Thanksgiving!

I think they are conspiring to hide after watching the Sarah P. YouTube interview with the turkey killer working in the background!

Happy Thanksgiving to you and yours!
