Why Did the Turkey Cross the Fence? ~ Camera-Critters #160

Why did the turkey cross the fence? To get away from that pesky photographer, of course!

Last weekend, on Saturday morning, we moved cattle from one pasture to another. Hubs went down the road to get some gates closed and a few other things ready for the move. He was to call me when he was ready for me to come help. He called and I headed down the road. However, I saw this female turkey decide to cross the road and start to go through the fence. I was torn... I needed to keep going to help move cattle... BUT, there was this wildlife critter in front of me, and I just so happened to have my camera on the seat next to me (I know you're shocked). I finally decided a couple pictures wouldn't hold things up for two long. ;-)

This turkey may call attorney tucson ... or is it attorney turkey... to file a suit against me for not getting a model release. ;-)

Turkeys. All I've heard about the last two weeks is turkeys... blah.


Turkey season opens Sunday and my husband is a little bit excited.


Neat capture, perfect timing.


I'm pretty sure she's slinking off to check with her agent about an image copyright contract :-)

I didn't even know there was such a thing as a wild turkey. You learn something new each day.


Have camera. Will take pictures! YeeHaw!


What a great shot. So glad you are always camera ready and able to share your shots with us!

Hope you can find time to visit. Have a glorious weekend.


I think she should run and hide. Wonderful photo and sighting.


LOL! We don't have wild turkeys in Sweden so I love seeing them.

Now we know why the turkey crossed the fence! (Does your husband know you stopped for a photo?)
I have big birds and little ones for CC today.

LOL - my husband knows me well enough by now to guess I'd grab my camera and snap shots first. My father, however, would be shouting to hurry up with the farm chores.
Great photo!

Beautiful capture!


I'm sure the cattle drive wasn't held up too much by a few photographs. You didn't have to mention it but, of course, the evidence was in the camera!

haha! oh so sorry, but the first thing that came to mind was, "yummm. dinner!"


You're so funny! And I do the same thing! I'm late nearly everywhere I go, when I'm on my game. lol This totally made me smile.:)
