Photo Hunters - Wild



I found the theme this week to be a hard one. I had to surf around a few of the other Photo Hunters to get some ideas. I wasn't having any luck thinking of a picture for "wild."

Once I got a little inspiration, I looked back through my pictures and found that I did indeed have something for the theme.

The Hunt - Wild

Each afternoon, while we were on vacation this summer in Utah,
a little group of wild turkeys would walk through our backyard
and then a few minutes later they'd pass by again on their way back to whence they had come.
Maybe they were going for a drink. Although you can't see from the picture,
just down the grassy hill is the Virgin River.



I took this picture at the North Rim of the Grand Canyon.
The WILD flowers were beautiful. I wasn't the only one who thought so.
This little bee agreed with me.

Ah, so you give us two choices of wild huh? I think I choose the first one of the Turkeys as a fav since we don't have that wild over here.

Great photos! Since we moved to our new home, we've seen a lot of turkeys which is pretty wild. I love the wildflowers shot. They're beautiful. Yellow flowers are my favorite!

I struggled, too, before finding shots for this week's theme, and I am enjoying everyone's different takes, as always. Great photos!

Wild turkeys are definetely wild - and simply fun to see!!! love it!

Susanne said...

I gotta say Ann, for someone who had trouble with the topic you sure came up with 2 great pics.

For some reason the turkey one makes me smile. I cannot imagine wild turkeys walking through my backyard, I guess.

The turkey looks so yummy, *erm* I mean so wild =)

ROOOOAR! 2 tigers and a special tigger? Please visit my wild hunt @ Coffee 2 go - thank you!

Terri said...

It looks a lot like the Hill Country in the first photo--so beautiful!
I noticed that you are adopting from Ethiopia--we have some really wonderful friends from there. My son's preschool director and his TK teacher were both Ethiopian so they taught the kids to sing Happy Birthday and a few other songs.

I doubt the wild turkey taste as good as the domesticated ones so we can just let them be. Love wild flowers in all shapes and sizes.
Mine is up too.

jenny said...

I had some pictures of wild turkeys at my father's house---in TX. I guess I could have posted those. And those turkeys really get around, don't they?

PowersTwinB said...

Great pictures. The wildflowers look like a flower that we have in our garden. We believe they are Coreopsis. We have seen many different colors.

I love turkeys. They are so neat. Kind of like Road Runners, but with more food. I like wildflowers too. I like to put wildflowers on my table for dinner. Great photos.

It is amazing that you can find wildflowers at the Grand Canyon...I loved the Grand Canyon. I think we need to take another trip up there...

Angelo said...

Great wild shots! I'm especially glad the wild turkeys posed for you so nicely. I've never seen one before, but I think they're around coz I have seen wild turkey crossing signs :) The wildflowers and bee are great too :) Happy Hunting, see you next week!
