    Very nice james. It looks like both of these toms have double beards. Very unusual.


    The reason the first one is all red, is because it is very excited . After he calms down a bit, his head will return to the same color of the other one.


    Very nice capture.

    Well done James. I have hunted these guys and they can be a very wary bird. You can many times hear them yet not get to see them. I am guessing they were intent on finding a female. We have some...very few wild turkey here but the tend to be smaller and very dark colored. Nothing like these great specimens you show.

    Re: 2Toms

    Thanks all . I have seen these toms strutting together for over a week now. Yesterday I got where they wanted to be before them, then hid till they came close enough . Funny that they dont fight. Thanks for the info Steve, on my way in to wait on them I spooked a big coyote took a far (desperate shot) he may of had them excited. I will crop the coyote and add it. 2Toms

    Great turkeys, and beautiful Tom's. There are many here but I have yet been fortunate to be able to photograph any. I would love the oppurtunity. Most times I see them going 75 mph on the interstate when they are in pastures next to the highway. Good work...keep shooting James.

    I'm shure he had some lady friends around, james.

    That yote , was waiting for dinner. Had the same idea you had, wait for them to return to the spot they gobble at every day. If you wouldn't have spooked the yote, you may have had some really interesting action shots.

    I never really took many turkey photos, might have to give it a try.
