Vanity

Oh, what a handsome bird I am - oh, yes, a fine figure of a bird! 

This wild turkey has taken to admiring himself in the chrome on a neighbor's pickup.  It's so comical to watch him.  I believe he thinks it's another turkey and he has to show off.  It was funny, too, that the other turkeys he was with weren't paying much attention to him.

He really is beautiful! Who cares if his other buddies did not admire him, he knows. Mirror mirror on the truck, who is the one looking good and strutting his stuff!

He is a big handsome fellow indeed. I always see the doves looking through our windows which are tinted and since they get their reflection back, I wonder what they are thinking to themselves. Maybe that it's time for some feather fluffing. :) Hope your day is great. Tammy
