On The Prowl
With excellent vision, this wild Rio Grande gobbler slowly scans for insects and seed. Turkeys eat various seed, berries, grass and insects..which includes ticks. The eye sight necessary to see ticks buried in the grass gives insight into how strong their vision really is.
I live in the western region of the Edwards Plateau, deep in the Texas Hill Country. I'm an avid outdoorsman spending a large portion of my time "out there" roaming the wide open spaces. Much of my photography is simply an extension of a very active outdoor lifestyle.
The challenges posed with closing the distance, pursuing wildlife photography, is an absolute hoot for me! The experience out there alone is everything to me. If I capture pixels along the way , it's icing on the cake.
