Wild Turkey Bachelor Group (VIDEO)

 

When in the wild, look with your eyes…not your feet, not with your paddle or oars; nor your pedals. The secrets and hidden treasures require you to slow down and pay close undivided attention.

I hit the water this afternoon after work. I wasn’t there for any specific reason; just watching and looking; basically learning.

But I found a good many lessons through careful observation; and beauty as well. I came across this group of turkeys while paddling just after a light rain shower. They had come to the shore to dry their wings and began to feed on bugs likely doing the same.

The sky was mostly cloudy this afternoon, then the sun would peak through at times. I was able to snap this shot during an in between period.

Then I got out of the kayak and rock-hopped through the river for quite a while, as it is very low at present, and came across this beautifully colored rock formation, and then a large downed pine tree.

Of course there were a few fish caught, but no keepers this afternoon. I only fished perhaps ten or fifteen minutes after exploring a while, but soon the rain got heavy and I opted to head for home. It was a rich day nonetheless.
