Giving Thanks

This weekend, these wild turkeys came to visit the area behind our trailer as we stopped for the night near St. Regis, Montana, on our way to eastern Montana.

I know there will be a lot of domestic turkeys eaten in Canada over this weekend, as we give thanks for the good things in our lives. These wild turkeys are thankful too (that they are not on our menu).

I know that I’m tasty,

But let’s not be hasty,

I tell you I’m tough to the bone.

It’s one lucky matter

I’m not on a platter,

So I’m giving thanks of my own.


Happy Thanksgiving, Canada!


Happy Thanksgiving!

This photo was taken in a big hurry to capture the birds before they disappeared into the grassy banks of the Missouri River. No time to zoom in. No time to think. No time to do anything but snap a quick photo with a point-and-shoot camera. But I wanted to make sure everyone got a turkey for Thanksgiving, so here they are.

Happy Thanksgiving, everyone!
