    There is a flock(?) of wild turkeys that apparently reside in the campground I am staying at in Bandon. I have counted 10 of them on a few occasions I have encountered them and yesterday got a moderately close view. Sadly I didn't have my DSLR so I yanked out my iPhone and started shooting while they grazed and wandered. I couldn't resist the shot when they started across the roadway in the crosswalk.

    Not much I could with the sun flare.

    Makes you ask the question "Why did the turkey cross the road?"

    Fun shot. I might crop some of the bottom to put more emphasis on the birds.

    That's priceless! The walking motion with feet in the air really make it work too. I agree, perhaps some experimentation on cropping some off the bottom might be worth engaging in to see if you like the result. Minor nit for a great capture though!
