The Turkey Trot ~ This view of the wild turkeys shows them all puffed up with their tails raised and fanned.  I think this was a reaction to nearby thunder from a lightening storm in the area.  Unfortunately, the turkeys are in molt, and only have a few full tail feathers left, as the new ones grow in.  Their fanned tails weren't very impressive.
