Today's image is titled Deer and Turkeys and was photographed by Nataraj Hauser.
This photo shows a regular menagerie gathering in a field of Hwy 151 near Sun Prairie. "I think I counted nine turkeys and five deer, all hanging out together," notes Hauser in the caption for the image. He was written recently about the waning of the winter season, observing the first shoots of spring as well as the slow emergence of homebound pets and their owners into the gradually warming conditions.
It's been a long winter for the wild animals out there too, but it looks like those surviving the cull of the cold and snow are anticipating spring too.
