|The Wild Turkey (Meleagris gallopavo)|
I have been off this week and have had a wonderful time taking a ton of photos and never has my lack of knowledge of the DSLR camera been so apparent. After months of practice my stellar average is still about one really good bird picture per thousand shots taken. I lucked into this turkey shot while struggling with a razor thin depth of focus, the low light and my shaky cold hands. How is it possible to consistently focus accurately on the birds eye? I wait for that glorious day when my ratio doubles to two keepers per thousand!
