OK, so this is more about the wildlife that is GOING TO BE in my orchard. These are my first turkeys in many years. They will be on patrol for bugs in just a few weeks! The first photo shows the turkeys within moments of one of them being born- still wet, slimy and sort of gross looking. Then a few hours the photo shows them all dry, fluffy and cute.
btw, @zazlev That is hands down the greatest photo ever to appear here, and @BobC is a close second only because his wasn’t as small. I would loose my mind if I found one of those. It would take everything I have to resist the urge to scoop it up, bottle feed it and raise it to be a pet like some I’ve seen done. Of course that would be both illegal and wrong and I’m sure I could resist the urge, but it would be hard. Zack’s just looks incredibly small. That little guy must have JUST dried off? Its hard to tell from the photo, but how small was it really? It looks like it is as small as a small adult rabbit, is that true? I’ve never seen one close to that small. Also, I’m surprised Bob’s let him get so close. I have seen them about that size but by then they are already running and jumping a mile high and won’t let you in a mile of them. Again, those are my favorite photos on this thread by a mile so far! thanks for posting.
