Maine! A haggle of hen turkeys

Wild Turkey: York County, Maine, USA, September 2023 — last week I posted images from a group of tom turkeys that I encountered out on my trike…that was inland from the house…this is a similarly sized group of hens from the seaward side of the house, again, from the seat of my trike. I can get petty close if I stay seated and just inch up using the peddles, camera at ready. Of course, they are feeding right at the edge of the road, so they are expecting (as much as turkey can expect anything) vehicles to come by. It is very rare to see one hit. OM Systems OM-1 with the ED 100-400mm zoom at 760 and 800mm equivalent. Program mode with my custom birds and wildlife modifications. Processed in Pixelmator Pro. First two ISO 2500 @ f6.3 @ 1/640th @ 760mm. Last one at ISO 4000 @ f6.3 @ 1/640th @ 800mm.
