Happy Thanksgiving

Today, on turkey day it seems appropriate to post some favorite photos of wild turkeys. Here the photos from my various camera traps –

And here from my hand-held cameras –

We’ll be enjoying turkey and stuffing, corn and squash, fresh baked rolls and pies – apple and pecan. Would that everyone could have as wonderful a day with family and friends and a great meal.

In the words of Andre Dubus:

“It is time now to sing of my gratitude:  For legs and hills and trees and seasons … and for all the roads I walked on, for the hills I climbed and descended, for trees and grass and sky.”

Wonderful photos of wild turkeys, Woody! I've never seen a wild turkey myself, so I'm always intrigued when I see photos of them.
We had Thanksgiving here in Canada last month, but I am wishing you all the best as you celebrate this weekend.

Yes, it's time to give thanks for all those wonderful places we walk, and the ability to do so. Some great turkey pix too.
