Wild Turkey (mating ritual)

Meleagris gallopavo

Description:

I almost froze my fingers trying to get these shots. These three turkeys were in the front of the house near the road. Quite a mating ritual to watch. One turkey appeared to be on guard. Beautiful dance. They appear to have thier heads stuck together and danced around with them connected.
