Turkeys are bizarre creatures with alien-like helmeted heads, weird excrescences like snoods and wattles, and unbelievable blue and red coloring.  But their feathers are quite beautiful, especially when displayed like an elegant fan.  What a bird!

    I love your artwork! Thanks for inspiring me to get back into drawing and painting! We’ve just moved to Ohio and I’m still in the “I don’t believe I’m here” stage, but drawing always makes me feel real. Keep it up!
