return to antelopia

image

Antelopians include more than just antelopes. This many-named cat poses with a wild turkey in the background, giving this shot a totemic quality.

Do you call your totem a mountain lion?  Or a puma, a cougar, a panther or a painter?  A wild turkey is a wild turkey everywhere, so far as I know.

(Both shots are cropped to 4×3, the first was tweaked slightly on FastStone, the second one is straight out of the camera. Pentax D-FA 100mm f/2.8 macro on Pentax K-5IIS.)
