After several weeks of cool. damp weather, spring sprang yesterday afternoon, with temperatures shooting into the 70s. This morning, the local wildlife responded by going crazy. When I walked outside about 5:00 a.m., there were two large racoons, deer, turkeys, and songbirds making a racket.
A couple of hours later the turkeys were still hanging around - two males and three females (I think). The males were showing off, and the females (not shown) were pretending to ignore them, although every once in a while they'd take a discreet peek. I think the guy on the right is going to be the winner, since he has the biggest . . . tail.
Not great pictures - they were taken from some distance through a window that wasn't exactly clean, but what the heck.
