This Beautiful Moment is brought to you by alpha-males.

We live in a wooded area in Massachusetts right on a pond.  Some friends say we live in the “boonies.”  Well, we have very interesting neighbors that took up residence this past year.  A while back, I posted pictures of the 20 + turkeys that march down the street and to the pond.  But those were taken through a window.  The other day, they let me come outside and get closer.

And the males were strutting their stuff.

I have never seen turkeys in the wild until moving here.  I must say I was quite impressed with the toms and their feathers fluffed out.
An interesting observation of this pack of turkeys is that they stroll down here Monday through Friday mornings.  It seems they too take the weekend off.
