That's right...turn to the side and look back at the camera...perfect...
I once asked this ole country boy how they cook wild turkey, he responded..."Ya cut off the head, dip in boiling water to get rid of the feathers, cook it at 350 for about 4 hours or so, grind it up and feed it to the dogs...then go buy a Butterball"



Beautiful photo....I love Butterball turkeys.

Some older images from a safari to Kenya and Tanzania in 2007. Best holiday in my life!

Stunning work! Really beautiful shots. Great demonstration of the trusty old 100-400mm lens, too!

+1...Vossie, I echo what everyone else just said. Makes me wish I was there. :)

Well done. I like #1 the best...great water reflection. :)

Great shots everyone and a well deserved front page to you Edward.

November is not exactly the most inspirational time of the year where I live, but went for a walk this morning. Taking picture of flowing water is in my view quite difficult. Either you use a very fast shutter speed to freeze the water or you allow the water to smooth out, with a slower shutter speed. But if you let it smooth too much, then there is no life left. So I tried to balance that.

So cool :) Great job! 8)

I have about 10,000 geese in the bay behind the house! They are LOUD!!!

The second shot is a 7 picture panorama and shows about 5 percent of the total flock....
WOW! ... even the 5% looks like a lot ... that must be LOUD! ... nice pic.

Ear plugs, anyone? ;D

Sorry...the period at the end got included in the link for some reason. Drop the period, and it should work.

Hmm, but this sounds kind of like cheating!? ;)

Once you see the results, you won't think that. ;D

It is no more cheating than hiring a model for a studio shoot..... and the best thing is that chickadees will work for peanuts :)

LOL ;D  Very nice photo. Do they sign a release? ;)
