The turkeys were walking around the back of our house, this evening and headed for the ravine of our woods...The two little ones were so cute and I just barely got them in the picture through the side window. as they were moving fast.

    Thank you all for the comments...An update to this is that my husband saw a red fox following
    the turkeys today but it ran the other direction when it saw our dog..We are thinking the fox
    might have killed some of the other young ones as they usually have a bigger family than this...It is survival of the fittest in the wildlife kingdom.

    You did a beautiful work in capturing the mom and babies with gorgeous colors and the details are outstanding. Back home in Wisconsin we seen them all the time. I enjoyed reading your comment about the fox and how survival means some will be killed. Nature provides. Gorgeous work Andrea.
