So… On the way back from photographing pigs, we ran into some turkeys. It was just about sunset when we spotted them. I jumped out of the Jeep, figuring that I’d get some photos of them as they ran away.
They didn’t run away. They ran to me.
That made for some good photos. They were on the other side of a barbed wire fence about two feet away. They paced back and forth like they were posing. I got some shots and decided to hit the road.
That’s when they decided to get grumpy.
They plowed through the fence and started smacking me with their wings. What is the proper response to attacking turkeys? Get some video! Nikon Z6 in one had, my phone in the other, while getting beat up by turkey wings. What a day!
