The Turkey Trot
These three turkeys have been camera shy the whole week. The Panolian’s office has been flooded with calls of three turkeys making the rounds in Batesville. Everytime we showed up at the last sighting, the turkeys were gone. Finally, early Saturday morning, we got lucky and got this shot off. As the photographer got closer, the turkeys let her know they did not appreciate the company. At photo time, the turkeys were in Dogwood Hills.
