19th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Natural World
A young poult turkey looks towards it's parent for guidance and protection.

After noticing the larger adult first, I could see some stirring in the weeds. Soon the poult jumped out to be alongside his parent. The adult turkey almost seemed to show the poult the ropes.
