Let them go and gather straw for themselves. Exodus 5: 7

I shot this through the window on the passengers side of our moving car and it was interesting to see these wild turkeys take refuge in the straw bales across the field...It was quite a distance from the highway and I only had my 105mm lens on my camera.

It may have been a draw
To pick the best voice,
For "Turkey in the straw."
When judges made their choice,
Who'd win the audition...
These birds weren't around
To hear the final decision...
Whilst they stood upon the ground
Gathering bluegrass roots,
By the hay bales in the snow,
Each gave their own tributes
Honoring singer Bill Monroe.
Poetry by me AJP

This picture brought to mind the old song: "Turkey in the Straw"....Here is a link to the song lyrics which is much better than my poetry:)
