As some know I live on 35 acres. So, I have a lot of wild critters. A lot of the hang around because I feed them. This includes a herd of deer, squirrels, wild turkeys, and black bellied whistling ducks on occasion. The occasion being when they decide to take advantage of the corn and water laid out mainly for the deer. The wild turkey hen that hangs around from spring until fall has returned as of yesterday. It's just fun to watch her walk around and doing what turkeys do. I call her Gertrude because she just looks like a Gertrude. She is joined once in a while by another hen I named Mildred. Gertrude is not the most photogenic critter and neither are the ducks. So forgive the somewhat lousy photos. The one with all the bucks looking at you has the ducks at their feet. The other is obviously Gertrude.
