Ocellated turkeys are strange birds whose unusual traits make them close to Joy Taney’s heart. Aside from their plumage being a rainbow iridescent extravaganza, they are also one of the few birds species whose girls are as colorful as their boys. This seven-person team effort brought out the best in everyone who had a part in creating this piece!
