    Telling the turkeys to go home... and looking really stupid.

    So I took a nice ride out around Lincoln MA tonight. Stopped by the reservoir and snapped a few pics...







    I also came across a rafter of wild turkeys bullying the road. One of them was a real bad ass, had an arrow in his wing and walked around like he was out for revenge

    Anyhow, I needed to clean my visor anyhow, so I pulled over and thought I might try spooking them off the road. So, I run at them like an ape. Wave at them with my visor cloth. And generally go about making an ass of my self... all with the GoPro running. Hahah...

    Sounds like a group ride is going to take shape here.

    Ha, it looks like you were making an asset out of yourself about a mile from my apartment (as the turkey walks)

    Crimedog, it's nice out there. A good fog was rolling in about sunset as well. Made the ride home pretty moody. Loved it!

    NESR video of the year nomination! I laughed pretty hard. Seems like turkeys can't see high-viz. Thanks for posting.

    A couple more shots from the GoPro in Lincoln and Concord. I like this low exposure effect I get at night with the GoPro.









    Ok, I had to slow it down to 20mph to get this one not to blur...

    The first pics were taken with my old 60d.

    The go pro pics were taken with the hero 3+ black mounted on my bars with a ram mount. The ram mount let's me swivel the camera to get different angles as I'm riding.

    Yeah, it's fantastic right now. I gotta get as many rides in as I can before the cold kicks in. This week is supposed to be great!

    The funny thing is when you're in the woods in full camo with a shotgun, those things spook if you wiggle your pinky.

    ...looks like I should trade in my realtree and face-paint for a high-vis jacket and a full-face helmet?
