Two Rio Grande Turkeys Displaying

By | March 19, 2020

These two Rio Grande Turkeys were strutting and displaying at the Wichita Mountains Wildlife Refuge in Oklahoma (March 15, 2020). They were easy to find and photograph because these two Tom Turkeys were in the Doris Campground where I’m camped. A bunch of Rio Grande Turkey hens and these two Toms would come through every morning and evening.

How I Got The Shot – Two Rio Grande Turkeys Displaying

I got behind a tree to photograph these two Turkeys.

I was hand holding a Fujifilm X-T3 camera with a Canon EF 100-400 mm f/4.5-5.6L IS II lens attached with a Fringer EF-FX Pro.
