Displaying toms


It has always been a source of mild amusement for me to see Thanksgiving advertisements using clip art of tom turkeys displaying. After all, such displays take place now during the breeding season.

Four toms strut down the road as they stalk two hens.

The hens wandered off into the bush, so the toms followed.

It is important to look one’s best.

    Enjoy your art. I have been entertained and educated about the nature in your wonderful country Alistair over the last few years since I discovered your blog. I will be visiting again in 2020 from Australia.
    Thanks mate

    One’s best indeed. Your captions, Alistair, are unfailingly spot-on.
