The test of an adventure is that when you are in the middle of it, you say to yourself, "Oh, now I've got myself into an awful mess; I wish I were sitting quietly at home." And the sign that something is wrong with you is when you sit quietly at home wishing you were out having lots of adventure. -Thornton Wilder

The nice thing about being confused is you get a chance to notice things a lot better than if you knew where you were going.

No Turkey!

Happy Thanksgiving to all my fellow Americans.  Happy regular day to everyone else. 

I never did find any wild turkeys for today's post so I present to you Turkey Tail Fungi

and Turkey Vultures.

The real turkeys will now come out from hiding.


  1. I like the nature post John .. Happy Thanksgiving to you

  2. It is sad that those birds have such ugly heads. A mistake of nature or a punishment?

  3. Well they all have some turkeyness in them. Thats for sure. Happy Thanksgiving.

  4. Happy Thanksgiving to you from a Canadian who's had a wonderful Thanksgiving in Oct.

  5. Did you happen to watch PBS and My Life as a Turkey? It was just wonderful. It would make you want to go out and buy a turkey pup or two.



  6. great turkey pics John.

    Happy Thanksgiving to you and yours. Give Sinbad some turkey too.


  7. Great shots of the turkey vulture! At least its safe from the dinner table.

  8. And a very Happy Thanksgiving to you and yours too. I couldn't find any turkeys in my files, but I really like that fungi turkey of yours.

  9. Great shots John... I hope you have a wonderful day.

  10. At first I thought, "What do you mean he can't find the bourbon?" Then I realized you meant actual wild turkeys. Oops. Believe it or not, we've had wild turkeys wander into our backyard. The birds. This was totally unexpected since we're in a decidedly urban neighborhood.

  11. Happy Thanksgiving, John! Got a laugh out of your turkey fungus.

  12. Ha! you gotta work with what you have! I hope you had a good Turkey Day!

  13. Those are quite majestic.
    Were there many where you photographed them or did you have to wait a bit to photograph one?
    Nice shots!
    Peace :)

  14. "The real turkeys will now come out from hiding."

    As in the Congresscritters?
