Suburban Wild Turkey gets its closeup

That’s a face only a mother could love, right? 😀

On the way home from playing ballet taxi for my daughter this evening, I happened across one of the toms from a nearby rafter of turkeys. He made for a quick, fun photo subject and, also gave me a chance to test out my Sigma 150-600 Sports since I calibrated the lens’ autofocus system with a product called FoCal from Reikan.

Continued testing will be the determining factor but on this first outing I have to say I am impressed. This was taken at 600mm from a distance of about 20 yards and is cropped at about 50%. You can make out tons of detail in the bird’s skin and count the hairs coming off its head.
