Some photos just have to be saved for the right moment. I captured this flock some time ago, perhaps the winter before last, struttin’ their stuff to the girls (who look duly unimpressed, I might add) after finishing a run at the local state park. It’s funny what you can capture besides a sunrise when you get up early enough.
Today is Thanksgiving, a day of gratitude which I hope I remember to carry the other 364 days of the year. My gratitude list is long and personal, so I won’t delve into it here. I will tell you, though, with a bit of levity, one item I am particularly grateful for at this moment: its rainy, right above freezing, and windy as can be. I am registered to run a 10k Turkey Trot in about an hour. I’m grateful for having enough sense to stay home, where its warm and dry, and let the turkeys run their annual race 🙂 I think I will stick to the treadmill and the Macy’s parade.
