Camera Critters: Dust Bunny and Baby Turkeys

What am I doing here you ask?
Rolling in the dirt....ahhhhhh!
Nibbling on the grass with a friend!
A baby turkey update...

A couple of weeks ago I posted a picture (here) of the baby turkeys who have visited my yard all summer. That photo was taken on July 15th. I took the above photo August 30th. In just a short month and a half they have gone from toddlers to young adults. Their tail and wing feathers have lost their soft downy look and the pattern of the feathers are now pronounced and mimic mamas. However, they are still mama's babies and only about five months old. If you look closely I think she's telling them to come on along!

What great nature pictures, Carletta!

:) I'd love to visit your back yard!

The first shot reminds me of Crash, the rabbit we had till last year. He used to lie on the ground when it was warm- his electric blanket!
In the last shot, the Mom turkey absolutely looks as though she's saying "come on, we need to hurry home for dinner", and typical, one is listening and looking, the other is oblivious!

Dimple said...

We have turkeys here, too, but I never see rabbits. Your bunnies are cute!

Janie B said...

So cute! You must live way out to have so many critters to photograph. They always look so serene.

I almost can't believe you got that great series of bunny pictures == but it's you, so of course I believe it!
Those baby turkeys grow up too fast.

The flag reflection in the post below was great too, esp. for this Holiday weekend.

Your yard is a wonderful place to find camera critters. The bunnies are all cute, even if one is rolling in the dirt.

The bunnies are so cute (I love your post title). The young turkeys are growing up fast.

They do look more like mama! I like the 'dust bunnies' too.

Thanks for sharing another step in their lives.

An excellent group of photographs, Carletta. I like to see the rabbits rolling in the dirt. I have seen that on numerous occasions too.

Janice Thomson said...

Great captures - have not seen a rabbit rolling in the dirt - delightful shot.

Rose said...

I have one question--can I come sit in your yard for a while?

Manz said...

don't think I've seen a rabbit chilling out like that... enjoyed your post :)

Craver Vii said...

I have never seen bunnies roll in the dirt that way. I wonder why they do that. Do you suppose it didn't like a smell from rubbing mint leaves or something?
