PIC OF THE WEEK: 12/14/15 • PREVIOUS WEEKALL 2015 PICSNEXT WEEK

Where:Townsend, TN • Cades Cove • Great Smoky Mts. Nat. Park
Notes: This Wild Turkey was photographed the day before Thanksgiving. As the sun lowered against the horizon, the shadows crept longer and deeper out into the field where four males, known as toms, foraged in the warm fading light. The golden-orange luster set a blaze to the birds’ iridescent plumage. Glowing copper and brilliant turquoise danced in unison with deep purple. Just ahead, I had positioned myself where the sun was to my back and hoped the Turkeys would keep moving in the same general direction. As the flock, called a rafter, marched forward they searched for bugs, seed and tender vegetation to eat. Eventually the flock crossed the last remaining beams of light just if front of me. This individual had slowed to forage for a minute. Suddenly he looked up and realized the other three birds were too far way for comfort. Immediately it broke into an invigorating trot and was back with his pack within seconds. It was another one of those days, I just did not want it to end.
