I decided to take another shot at Mount Monadnock from the vantage point behind the New Salem fire station. It’s a nice clear shot if one walks down the hill a bit from the area behind the fire station that most folks watch the sunrise from…complete with pickanick tables. While doing that I heard some low noises and thought they might be a turkey’s grumblings. I continued shooting the mountain and then climbed back up to the tables. A noise to my right got my attention and this was my surprise.
It’s not a very good shot with too slow an exposure so has motion blur. But this was a big boy! I’d say we were about 50-75 feet apart and he wasn’t too concerned but a little curious, I think. After some munching he wandered off before I got another chance to correct my mistake. But it was great to see him. Maybe we’ll meet again.
