Just Across The Ditch

Australian Brush-turkey or bush turkey
Photo taken by Kirsten Cliff in January 2009 in Brisbane, Australia

                                 summer heat
                                 the bush turkey pauses
                                 in my shadow

  1. Thanks, Melissa!
    It was my first time seeing bush turkeys - we don't have them in New Zealand. Not the best photo but those buggers move fast!
    Thanks for stopping by :)
