Curka (lat. Meleagris) je velika ptica iz reda koka (Galliformes).
Postoje 2 divlje vrste, jedna iz Severne Amerike (Meleagris gallopavo), a druga iz Srednje Amerike, odnosno poluostrva Jukatan (Meleagris ocellata).
Curke su u Americi pripitomili Indijanci pre dolaska Evropljana.
U Evropu su je preneli Spanci.
Zenka je manja od muzjaka i boje su joj manje raskosne. Raspon krila im je 1,5-1,8 m. U divljini zive u otvorenim sumama i poljima.
U Srbiji curke se gaje na farmi i u domacinstvu poljoprivrednika.

Good morning Pavle,
Those turkeies were just under perfect daylight, as they stride on the green grass.
Nice included elements of the backyard on image, gave extra sense of closed space.

Good morning Paja,
Nice shot of the two turkeys in a domestic environment. Nice lighting showing saturated colours of the grass and the purple flowers in the foreground.

Une belle image champêtre à souhait avec les volatile idéalement placés et le petit bouquet fleuri au 1er plan qui apporte un plus.

Bonjour, cher ami Paja,
Belle lumière enveloppant joliment ces deux dindons (sauf erreur).
Une image simple mais terriblement efficace.
Très bonne journée.

magnificent presentation of these turkeys!
Especially the green grass as a backdrop for the scene is fantastic(its vivid and well contrasting tones look so captivating).It´s nicely composed and framed scene with so pleasant rural character.
Have a nice day

Wow - those are big beast of birds, amazing looking turkeys strutting along. Well done for getting to this angle it gives the impact. If the colour is anything to go on then this shot is outstanding, an eye-catching amongst the fresh green setting and wonderfully refreshing and pleasing so well presented, Congrats.

Zdravo Pavle. Lipa priroda, sunce, cvice i dvi 'slobodne' ptice.Neke pute ncudim se od kuda rjeci dolaze. U moje misto zvali smo ih puran ili tuka. Bog zna zasto. Jedno se dobro sicam- komsija je imala purane i ja i moji prijatelji bi trcali za njima da ukrademo perija za nase igre od kauboja i indijanaca.Jadna stara bi trcala za nama da nas izgoni iz njenog dvorista. Pozdrav. Klaudio.

I enjoy the balance in this picture with the stronger coloured items at different corners. The turkeys between are well positioned along a crossing line.
aleXundar (701) 2013-10-10 10:11
A different one from you. The pair of turkeys of different color against green - very nice contrast.
Light from top left has been nicely balanced with the movement of the birds.
It's a lovely presentation.
ourania (19024) 2013-10-10 10:11
I like very much the rich colours and the interesting lighting variations that define this setting and provide a lovely context fot the presentation of the little turkeys. The other day I was discussing with a friend the term "meleagris", ancient goddess' Artemis' sacred bird. We were wondering what it might be and we were thinking of something more exotic than a turkey:) You have given your picture great depth, lovely light and fine natural textures. I enjoy the addition of the football and the synchronized step of the two birds. Congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a great evening,

Those are very cute turkeys. I love the direction of the light in this photo, giving their chins (?) a translucent effect.
PS. Sorry I do not have a new photo today, my latest update got confiscated by an over eager admin under the pretext of excessive postprocessing.

Hello dear Pavle,
Nice capture with perfect pov and layout !
Those are most probably going to land on a christmas dinner table !
TFS and best regards
kato (9693) 2013-10-10 18:47
You're capturing well this scene by a good composition and very excellent tone/clarity, so it's interesting and impressive to see two Turkeys on green grass. It looks like to have unique shape with red head. I hardly see this in daily life, but I hear as a food of christmas dinner. The shadow projected to the grass draws out a good effect.

beautiful composition and beautiful two big birds. Great capture and great executed image. Tfs.

Good morning Paja,
nice the view of the two turkeys,as they are carefree in the area.I like the light and the colour management as the clarity of the scene.

Formerly on the farm of my father became these turkeys with Christmas gender.
This is a very nice really picture middle of the green meadow.
What a lovely composition, lovely colours.
Very well done, TFS.
Have a nice weekend,

This two Turkeys were meant for you. I mean....look at them, they're posing almost identical for you. I called them "ying & yang" because they're also apposite to each other. One more 'white than black' and one more 'black than white'. Very well done shot.

Remembering childhood on a farm, natural and healthy meat
Photo of simplicity, but it fascinates me
Unique and spectacular

Une belle image de ces volatiles différentes de chez nous, belle lumière et cadrage avec le bouquet de fleurs sur le coin de l'image
NorthernLight (1181) 2013-10-16 2:51
I like turkeys. This is a very clear sharp picture with two of these birds. They seem to go in lockstep, which invites to smile. The purple flowers place a nice color contrast.
A colorful beautiful picture. Well captured!
Have a nice day
adramad (31195) 2013-10-25 9:42
Nice rural image, with the image of these two turkeys, contrasting plumage, the green of the grass and the flowers in the lower left corner, bringing charm to the image.
A perfect colorful natural.
A very bright image with optimum clarity.
Enjoy a great weekend.

U pravu si za izbor teme. moda na Planeti ima ljudi koji ne poznaju ćurku. Jo da si dodao da lepo peva. Sve u svemu vesela tema. Pozdrav Pajo!
