Tom Turkey On Thanksgiving Day

By | November 29, 2020

How lucky am I to see and photograph a wild Tom Turkey on Thanksgiving Day? I was photographing Deer on my property near the Ouachita National Forest here in Arkansas. This single Tom Turkey was following behind the Deer as they were passing my setup.
