Wild turkey or ....


I watched this thing from a distance and swear its head turned back and forth. And no, I hadn't been drinking any Wild Turkey!

Okay Lowell. What the heck is it? If it's a turkey it looks different from the ones in Canada.

I "see things" sometimes too! :)

funny how our eyes can and do deceive us. sometimes, in the distance, rural mailboxes look like people---really. So if you have lots of time on your hands keep watching the branch. MB

I saw it move, I believe you.

It's a branch? I thought I could see tail feathers. I guess that makes me the turkey.

JM said...

LOL! Very funny!

Probably it was very windy :)

So where's the tree?

There is a tree in our neighbor's yard that looked just like a rooster. Then it got pruned. Now it doesn't even look very tree-ish. I vote for a scientific experiment: have some Wild Turkey, then go back and take another look. Photograph if you can. Then decide. If it isn't there, you were right. It was a turkey. If it is, see if the Wild Turkey helps you decide what else it may be.

Perhaps this is an example of the elusive stick snake. They inhabit the Ocala area I hear.

A wooden turkey? Interesting.

I once made Bill stop the car so I could take a picture of ..... an escaped plastic garbage bag. Could have sworn it was a giant egret.

Also once I even posted a picture of a log in our Oregon wetlands that looked exactly like an alligator. Really.

Perhaps this all doesn't make you feel a bit better, but your post made me feel happy to know I wasn't alone ;>)

You've discovered a new species, Lowell!!! Thanks so much for your comment on my page. I always look forward to your photos too. I also look forward to your comments! Hope you and Lois Anne are having a wonderful start to your holiday weekend!

I can not tell what it is, a piece of wood, or a maverick? but I think the movement that you saw was deceiving the eye. It worked your subconscious! :) Have a nice day, friend!

Reminds me of that famous quote from that famous movie :-) In this case it would be..... "I see wild turkeys..."

"Photographers deal in things which are continually vanishing and when they have vanished there is no contrivance on earth which can make them come back again." — Henri Cartier-Bresson
