Meet two of the fourteen Wild Turkeys that have recently been visiting my yard. What a fun group to watch. Slow moving, wary, deliberate and when you take a closer look, fun and curious faces. Maybe that's why I had so much fun sketching them.
I also read about the shape of a turkey's wing, while sketching this. They are blunt in shape with shorter feathers that allow for quick bursts of flight to lift a heavier body. So I took a closer look at my photo images and shortened some of the feathers, leaving the original length as a reminder for later, as well as, adding some notes in the margin.
