"Smoke Phase" Turkey

We’ve recently been seeing a couple of unusual turkeys in a large flock working their way thru our backyard. They both have a lot of “white” color which is called a smoke phase. This is my favorite shot I’ve gotten, so far.

Handsome “fellow” Dave. He does looks like he’s just passing through. I’ve never seen a turkey like this one, he has beautiful plumage and you’ve gotten great detail in it’s feathers. Thanks for posting this.
