11/25/2010: happy Turkey day!

Not a very original thought, but here are some turkeys for Thanksgiving. These fellows were strutting their stuff this spring at Laudholm Farms in Wells Maine (Wells National Estuarine Research Center) early one foggy morning when I was out after spring birds with my digiscoping rig. I sincerely hope they are still in good health today!

I have a lot to be thankful for today…family…friends…good health…the many opportunities I have to enjoy the natural world all around the US (as part of my job, for which I am also thankful just in the sense of “gainful employment”)…lots of tech toys: cameras, phones, computers, kindle, etc. etc…and a pervasive sense of living where I am loved and can love, both in the macro-cosmic and micro-cosmic sense. Love is the way I experience the universe in person, and the persons that make up my life. When I am most aware of that, I am most thankful.

But back to the turkeys: Canon Powershot 1400IS behind the eyepiece of the ZEISS DiaScope 85FL. Somewhere around 2000mm equivalent. f4.5 @ 1/125 @ ISOs 125 and 250.

And a very happy Thanksgiving to you and yours!
