Rocket Gobbler

The last few years have seen a boom in the wild turkey population in north Alabama. We have been seeing them at our homestead. But, every once in awhile, on the way in to work at NASA Marshal Space Flight Center, you catch one out and about.

Now, if you have ever hunted turkey, you know how strange they can be. Unlike deer, they don't run off at the first sign of humans. They just kind of mosey on off....

Anyway, driving down towards building 4200, on a little knoll, I spied these guys. I stopped and shot a few pictures of them. I wish I could have taken the picture from the other direction so that you could see the rocket motors about 50 yards away.
