The Steve said...

Is that a turkey ? Either way, I'd like to see him go for a dip ^_^

Is this little guy on a farm near you ?

judi said...

he is rather staid and stately, like British Royals. great captures!

Denise said...

Those are really cool photos Carletta. I saw a couple of turkey's over the weekend up on Skyline Drive, but didn't have a chance to take a photo of them. So glad that you did. They're great!

Karen said...

What a handsome young man. .. and yes, I think that bird bath might be a little too small. :-)

Cool capture !!

Stacie said...

Those wild turkeys are fun to watch! Great pictures.

Snap said...

I'm laughing out loud at this one! Great photos of a turkey with his bird bath! ;D

Rose said...

Maybe he just came for your entertainment. Or to wash his face and hands only!

Joy said...

Nice feathered fellow!

Indrani said...

Oh yes, he needs to be provided with a bigger one. :)

I am Harriet said...

Cool pics, Carletta!


We often see them when we go to Alabama in the summer! It's always a thrill to see birds and animals in the wild!

Nice pose turkey! You'd better hide before Thanksgiving rolls around.

Your EG Tour Guide said...

There's a turkey with a wild imagination. ;-)

Susan at Stony River said...

Lovely photos! He seems to be posing for the camera, in the second one--and nicely done too LOL.

Tricia said...

Did he take a bath in the bird bath? He's a big one, isn't he? WoW!

mamapippas said...

Great photo !
Did he take a dip ?

Susan said...

Great photo- I have turkey in my yard all the time....and I can never get a shot like that. I love it!

Faye Pekas said...

LOL, yes I think hes just a little big for that bird bath. Handsome guy though :)

Janie said...

Lol. He wouldn't get much of a bath in that! Maybe he's just looking for fallen bird seed. Great photo!

2sweetnsaxy said...

Great shots. LOL! That would have been funny to find it standing in that little bird bath. :-D

Adrienne in Ohio said...

LOL, Carletta. Your post made me smile! He does seem a bit large for the bird bath. But who can blame such a handsome fellow for wanting to groom a bit.

Staci said...

Ah very cool! Maybe he wants to be, um, very cool.....

Great photos!

Sharon said...

It's funny that you have a wild turkey in your yard! Great job catching him with your camera!

Wonderful captures of this fine feathered critter! Yez ... Molly's definitely a pampered pup. Ms Kitty lives a similar life ... just because. ;--)

Carletta: Really nice captures of the neat turkey.

Marie Reed said...

Mr Tom is ginormous! How nice to see him strutting hios stuff across your blog!

maryt/theteach said...

Guess you don't have to go to the supermarket at Thanksgiving, eh, Carletta? Or is Mr. Tom a pet?

Leedra said...

The 2nd photo he appears to be posing for you.

lv2scpbk said...

That's too funny about the bird bath.

George said...

Great pictures of the turkey. I don't think he would fit in the birdbath!

Terry said...

mr. uncle don montean lives on a country road and the wild turkeys and the deer are always in his back yard, coming in for a visit.
one year it was such a hot summer that the thirsty deer were eating his apples and he never stopped them.
yes those deer and the wild turkeys were protected by mr.uncle don montean..he would never let the hunters go in his back field.
those sweet animals trusted him just as your backyard wild ones trust you and your gentle camera carletta...
god bless you...love terry
