    Strange looking Turkeys, are they a different species from European ones?

    I'm sure they are, they're local to New England.

    So these are the turkeys that the founding fathers ate on the first Thanksgiving Day.

    Well, it's the same kind the Massachusetts Puritans hunted and ate--leaving aside the question of whether the "First Thanksgiving" ever actually happened. I just saw a large group myself (here in Massachusetts) about 10 minutes ago. The critter also graces the bottle of an expensive brand of bourbon called Wild Turkey (aka "the Turk"). So I guess you could say Puritans eat them and hedonists drink them.

    Well, not the same ones, as presumably the Founding Fathers shat them out after eating them.

    I was never a drinker and don't drink at all these days, but years ago a girl I was boffing for a time introduced me to Wild Turkey, and I enjoyed it, although in the end it made me sick as alcohol generally does. Or maybe it was the girl that made me sick, let me think...No, no, it was definitely the bourbon.

    Wild Turkey is really strong so it was probably wasn't the lady.

    Some pictures from Patriata (Punjab) and its neighbouring areas, taken last year.

    This was perhaps a cricket ground, but I couldn't get whole pitch in the frame. My bad!

    Great job, Snowqueen. I especially love the bird, as I'm very fond of them. Punjab is one of those exotic parts of the world I don't think I'll ever get to, so pictures, films and documentaries will be my guides. Well, and virtual reality, soon enough.

    OK, lads and laddettes, here is the first of this morning's offerings. I call it House on Hill, creative chap that I am. It was taken moments ago while standing on my deck.

    Also taken moments ago on my deck, I've entitled this one Deer in Field. See if you can spot the reason.

    Great pics SQ. The bird looks like he is being specially gracious, letting you photograph him,

    Nice pic, the colour of the deer matching the colour of the field. And the title is original indeed, almost surrealistic!

    The deer blends better in the field than that white house does in the trees.

    I liked the close up of the Myna bird, Snowqueen. I don't think the zoom on my phone would allow me to take such pictures.

    I don't think the white house is meant to blend into the trees. The picture of a lone house up there gives the picture its appeal, at least for me.
