Yesterday, my husband and I were driving near our house when six wild turkeys happened to be crossing the road. They seemed in no hurry at all. Fortunately, I had my camera so I took a few shots of them.
They sauntered across the road as if they had the right-of-way. In fact, they did.
The turkeys walked right past my side of the car and I took another picture through the open window. They were too close for me to get all of them in the picture.
Clearly, these turkeys (like the proverbial chicken) were crossing the road to get to the other side. Fortunately, the driver of the car behind us was aware that we had a good reason for stopping right in the road. It is not at all uncommon to come upon a stopped car around here. Usually, it's because a deer has crossed and the driver is waiting, knowing there are likely more to follow. We stop for all animals here, including squirrels, chipmunks or anything else that shares our community with us.
There is almost always a friendly wave from the driver in front as he or she is finally able to move forward. I like that.
