    Whenever I squat down in the yard to take a picture I have time to take a quick one and then I get this -

    Here's the only almost decent picture of my RP poults - [​IMG]

    These are the friendliest guys I have ever had!

    [​IMG] Yes, my pictures of young turkeys turn out similar. They are very curious creatures.

    My turkeys do the same thing. Most other birds I've raised though think I want a picture of their butt... [​IMG]

    Sjisty,

    Try this.

    Put down some treat for them. Ours like ant's eggs and you they are unaware of anything else while they eat.

    Lie down some distance away once they are into the food.

    Just click away. They will approach you eventually but don't stop until they have their faces in your lens. You never know when you might catch a good shot by luck alone.

    Stop the flash from going off. It's over exposing the close shots.

    Get hold of some editing software so that you can crop the images taken from a distance.

    Having written that I suppose I'll have to get out my camera too!
