Windshield Views (3/13/13)

I saw a large flock of wild turkeys on the East side of Highway 101 this morning. They are not such a rare sight on the Central Coast, but, this morning was special.

The toms were a-fuss with the rights of spring and had their tail feathers on full display. The slanting early sun backlit the fan to create a stained glass of feathers. Quill tips were a brilliant blue/white against dark umber.

You can’t tell me that the boys didn’t know exactly where the sun was and how to best present themselves  to get the ladies’ attention!
