I took Isaac to visit the Little Farm at Tilden Regional Park in Berkeley, where this turkey was showing off in front of the old plow. I also thought that another reference to (what I wish was) obsolete technology couldn't hurt in these times of world strife. Since we're so close to (US) "Turkey Day" I thought this guy deserved some air time...especially since he'll be keeping his head when so many are losing theirs...

Thanks! And all you other commenters picked up some "helpful" ticks since this was from before the institution of that feature and I hadn't been back to see it.

Georgeous turkey! Where'd you find him. He is a perfect specimen. I like the old plow beside him. This is so funny with the title. Great humor. Thanks for the fun with this one. Tech are great and the humor is the "wow". Way to go. PTL

I think turkey's are usually ugly, but this one is really nice looking....okay NOT pretty, but he's okay.
The shot is really nice, wish you'd of bent down on his level to shoot. I think that would of improved this shot. Over all nice job. Justine

I don't get how this related to the challenge. I know the plow is a technology, but ... a turkey?
