Nice framing to get all three together. How did you get this shot with that shutter speed? You must have a steady hand.

@Julie Brown: Hi Julie, I panned, which is why the grass is blurred. I was outside shooting the sunset when these guys walked by, so did not have time to change shutter speed. We are up here for the weekend visiting friends....there are always turkeys in their yard,,but this is the first time I have seen this particular grouping! It is raining a bit this morning, but maybe I'll look for the little quails later on.

Cute! It's amazing how pretty and colorful wild turkey feathers are! Hope you have a wonderful weekend!
