Due to twisting my ankle while on my morning walk this last Saturday morning, I had to lay low, stay home from work and elevate and ice my ankle. Well, Sunday of course, was the first nice day we've had in a while, so I decided to grab my camera, and just drive around scouting spots t visit maybe later.
As I was driving down a road near the lake front in the city of Oak Creek, WI. What do I see, but a pair of Turkeys right by the road. The male, was displaying, and protecting his mate, who, I notice awhile after arriving, as she tried to move, she was limping badly. I did stay and watch them for about 10 minutes, she only moved about five feet in that time. I did call the local DNR office, and they said they would send someone out.
Just thinking about this photo yesterday evening, and today. I am in awe at the loyalty that what is considered a dumb animal displayed in taking care of its mate. Maybe its something we can all take to heart!
