Perhaps I've never reeeaaaly looked at a turkey. Not right up close. But they really are quite pretty - well, their colors are spectacular! Yes, they do actually LOOK like aliens - angry aliens - but bright cadmium red and cerulean blue and lavender and everything in-between aliens.
This big guy was at a little farm we went to in October to pick pumpkins (see earlier post). The hen turkey really liked my turquoise ring. This guy - not so much. Look at that eye!
