A good job on the exposure, Dave. Difficult to do with relatively dark birds in the snow. I like he general composition, but I do wish more than one of the bird gave you some eye contact-not anything you can control. Colors in the turkeys are great.

I don’t have much to add above what Dennis said - I’ll echo that I like the colors on the birds.

Exposure is perfect on both the snow and the turkeys–not an easy feat! The turkeys’ iridescence is showing very nicely. I agree with Dennis that there does not seem to be a solid focal point. The FG snow-covered thing is a little distracting.
