We have wild turkeys in our woods in the back. Daily they come and eat the food we put out for the birds. Yesterday we saw the largest Tom we have seen, The tuff of feathers on his chest is really long and shows he is a older bird. We are guessing it weighs between 25 to 30 pounds, maybe more. You can see how much larger he is then the even the 2nd biggest tom. Such pretty birds not much worries them. Large toms have been known to attack humans. We are going to be adding less corn to our bird feed as we really don't want them hanging around but it does make for some great shots. If you want to learn some neat facts about them click here.
In this picture I wanted the sepia to make the rose as warm in one color as it was in the original form. I kept the background and most of the rose soft and was pleased with results. Please click on the link to see the other participants in Mary The Teach's Sepia Scenes
