Okay, I'll grudgingly admit that it is pretty in the fall.
On the wildlife front, we were visited by the Turkey family again yesterday evening. It appears to be Mrs. Turkey and her seven little ones, who have grown quite a bit since I last saw them. They were pretty brave; Momma came as far as the citrus tree out front while the rest hung out around the trees. I think that Momma was scouting out the corn, but she just didn't feel safe enough to lead the brood up to the house. She stayed between them and the house pretty much the entire time they were passing through.
I took the photos through the front window; the slightest sound sends them skittering away (alliteration!).
It looks like there's one male, or maybe I just don't know how they differ in looks.
For some reason, the following photo tickles me:
In this picture, it looks like there are two mommies, one on each end. I love the way they appear to be keeping guard on the young 'uns.
Momma got this close to the porch before she shied away:
