A recent photo excursion was not going well for me with few critters seen and nary a click of the shutter on my camera. I was anxious, however, to test out a new lens I got so decided to try for a relatively tried and true subject – our local turkeys.
These guys live amidst suburbia but in an area that has a good bit of open space for them to sustain themselves. It didn’t take long to find a bunch of toms wandering around and putting on a show. While maybe not the most exciting photo subject, the wild turkeys are fun to watch and photograph.
It also proved to me that the lens was a worthy addition to my bag. The bokeh (background blur) on the shots was absolutely awesome as you can see and the detail amazing. The lens? A Canon RF 70-200 f/2.8L which will be a great match for my EOS R5.
