Out on the prairie said...

My best sighting this year was 52 in a field.When I see the tom's fanning I almost run off the road. There is a very good populace around me, I see them next to the expressways.Ben Franklin wanted them to be the national bird over the eagle here in the US.

Gary's third pottery blog said...

gosh, how did you get turkey photos, wow!!!! I notice, speaking of fans, that today you have 600 readers following you :)

Mental P Mama said...

Love turkeys! Except the one who bites our mailman and our electric meter reader...he is a menace. And, wow! Thank you! What a surprise! Such great company I'm in....

Daryl Edelstein said...

what a great group of blogs ... and turkey sausage rocks my breakfast daily

Linda said...

I'm alternating between admiring your beautiful turkey photos and being jealous of them. :)

Deb Colarossi said...

Great photos Hilary.
I find it strange to see turkeys in the country now. Our neighbour in South Burlington had one in their backyard!
I also see hawks, and turkey vultures and we are in suburbia ... so strange.

MaggieGem said...

Turkey.... I'm BIG Fan around Thanksgiving ;-)

Great finds this week, you always find such great blogs!

DJan said...

Well, although I am a FAN of yours, I don't have quite the display of this guy. And thanks for the POTWs, I always enjoy learning about new blogs. :-)

Suldog said...

Thanks for the love, Hilary. You know I return it to you via a virtual hug!

We have more and more wild turkey sightings around the Boston area every week. I've had to slam on the brakes a couple of times while watching one cross the street. They really aren't the smartest birds :-)

TexWisGirl said...

thanks, hilary, once again for choosing these. and lovely turkey feathers!

Kat said...

Wow! Those pictures are amazing! How did you manage to get so close???

JillsyGirl Studio said...

WOW! What a close-up! And, yes, I guess I'm a fan...especially when flying! ;-)

Kerri said...

I am a Fan! I think they are lovely birds!

messymimi said...

Wild turkeys are beautiful and rather smart. Domesticated -- not so much. That one is a good looker.

Brian Miller said...

big grins...thank you ma'am...and congrats to everyone! really cool textures in the turkey tail hilary!

ellen abbott said...

they do have beautiful feathers.

Red said...

A fine play on words!

lime said...

wow! i cannot believe the detail you captured on such skittish birds!

Gillian Olson said...

Great pictures, the wild turkey is a beautiful bird. Thanks for the weekly picks.

L. D. Burgus said...

I am a fan of your wonderful photos. Wow the colors are so great in the feathers.

Kerry said...

Splendid turkey-shots! The other day there were 2 turkeys and a deer leaving our driveway when we came home. As quick as I was with my camera, it wasn't quick enough. So I'll just enjoy these instead.

Kamana said...

thanks for the shout out, hillary!

Gail Dixon (Louisiana Belle) said...

Yay for Barbara! I must check out Suldog's blog post. The title has me very curious. LOL

Barbara said...

I've never seen a turkey up close before - now I know why we always used pine cones for their bodies in our elementary school Thanksgiving art projects! Beautiful photos! And thank you so much for the POTW!! I'm very honored!!

Nezzy said...

We've had so many followin' the cattle in the winters (the pick the grain' outta the cow patties...I know TMI...ewwwww) that the Conservation Agents come net 'em and take 'em to the National Forrest 'round here.

You always pick the best blogs sweetie.

Now I gotta catch up on some good readin'!!! :O)

SandyCarlson said...

A great lead-in today, Hilary, with unexpected photos and great new bloggers to check out! :)

Scott said...

Great job on those turkey feathers. Love the color and detail.

Kathleen said...

Wow, Hilary, what kind of lens are you using? The detail is just stunning!
And thank you, my dear, for the lovely honor! I never imagined myself in the same column as Brian! W00t!!!

david mcmahon said...

Yes, I am a fan - of your work.

That first shot is a great abstract, Hilary. Beautiful tones, too.

I upload images every day on a site called 72dpi.com and still yearn to find the time to return to blogging!

missing moments said...

LOL ... I'm with Daryl, big fan of turkey bacon every morning! I'm honored to be part of your POTW.

Karen (formerly kcinnova) said...

I'm always a fan of your photographs -- and that Tom has some fantastic plumage!

I'm way behind in my blog reading, but I hope to swing by each of this week's POTW winners.
