Valentine Turkeys

My drive to school each morning is nine miles of country roads over rolling hills and over the top of the highest hill in Tallahassee. This hill is the site of the old 17th century Spanish mission, San Pedro y San Pablo de Patale. Each time I drive it, I am self-trained to always look down the long drives on the north side. There, if I am very lucky, I will see the wild turkeys that feed in the edges of the woods. I see them just often enough to keep me looking. Today, I got a Valentine gift: the turkeys were there when I was coming home! There were but three; sometimes there are close to a dozen. But today, I had my camera and got this somewhat fuzzy shot from quite a distance.100_1729
