Wild Tom Turkey

This is a nice picture of a wild tom turkey in the woods.  It was taken in the mid-morning and the sunlight was filtering through the overhead canopy with a lot of hot spots.  Fortunately, this bird chose to stand for a few moments in a spot that was evenly lit and he was broadside to the camera so we can see his beard.  Some dead twigs cause a mild distraction but luckily they are back by his tail.
400mm lens, 1/250 second at f/2.8, ISO 6400.

Fawn Whitetail Deer in Forest

This whitetail deer fawn paused just long enough to give us this nice picture.  The fawn was alert to  some noise or movement so his ears were in the perfect position.  The light was not bright due to the overhead canopy.  But it was nicely diffused without the harsh sunbeams that we often encounter.
