Wildflowers are starting to bloom here in Indiana. Don't know what the orange one is, but must have come from a packet of wildflower seed that did not come up last year. White one, I call this a Spring beauty, should have a pink tint to it. Have a large Maple tree that the ground is carpeted with these beauties.
Its time for the wild turkey mating ritual to begin. This year I have a portable blind so I can get closer to all the action. The two gobblers just strut around and show off for the hens,which I assume makes her choice. The first pic apparently is some kind of a face off. Have not seen any fighting,however the 2.5 inch spurs could do damage. The second pic shows gobblers closing in on the hen. She rejected both.
