As the last bird disappeared I raised my head from the viewfinder just in time to see an eagle departing in the same direction as the turkeys had flown. Their evasion tactics were sufficient for them to avoid becoming the eagle's next meal.
This big gobbler is not destined for anyone's Thanksgiving table this year. I photographed him early this morning and with turkey season closed he should still be out there enjoying life while his domestic kin are being carved.
Happy Thanksgiving everyone and thanks for stopping by Country Captures!
