Ocellated Turkey

Stumbled across an ocellated turkey. We both froze.

His left eye is looking right at you.

I clicked a pic. He clucked and flew back in to the jungle.

As I walked off, the ruins didn’t look like a gray, dull mystery. The buildings became vivid, precise works of art. The buildings were elaborate and full of color, like the ancient Mayan turkey.

Don’t be an artifact. Be colorful. Roar!

To whisper is to be misunderstood.

An ocellated turkey is a colorfully vibrant wild turkey that lives in the Yucutan region of Guatemala and Mexico.
