“One late winter morning as the sun gracefully peeked over the horizon, Osceola Turkeys meandered out of the dense forest and into a clearing. Touched by the first light of day, their feathers became boldly colorful. It was the sun-radiating iridescence of these birds that I wanted to capture with this painting.

As the birds follow one another out of the shadows, a young Barred Owl watches quietly from the background. What we didn't know right then was that a Panther was also watching from far off. While photographing the Osceola Turkeys for this painting, we had an actual encounter with a wild Florida Panther! See the link below.” - Peter R. Gerbert
