WILD TURKEY

While I was at my son’s house this weekend, the neighborhood turkeys stopped by.  Not shy at all.  As I photographed one of them, it became agressive, loud, started pecking at the lens shade of my telephoto lens.  I backed up slowly, and reached in my truck for a piece of pipe.  No- I didn’t hit it, I am a nature photographer.  But it did take the hint and rejoined the rest.  This image is of one of the others, and as you can see it wasn’t bothered by the action going on around it.

Resting up before the Thanksgiving Dash!

I am a fine art landscape and nature photographer living and working on Cape Cod. The area, and my familiarity with it, leads to compositions of light, weather, and frequently water in its many forms. I share my gallery with my wife Diane Heart, whose porcelain and raku pottery blends beautifully with my work
