Pairing Up

BetterPhoto.com Photo Contest SECOND PLACE Winner
 
Pairing Up
Pairing Up

----
The Chicken Flock at Cuttalossa Farm.
----------
Two trips to the over-200-year-old farm taught me a LOT about the lives of chickens. It wasn't until I was surprised by a dramatic mating at the end of my second visit, that I went back through my photos and pieced together the courtship.
----
These two "couples" were starting to pair up at the rear entrance of the sheep barn. The pair at the door eventually consummated before my eyes. Stay tuned.
----
On the side of the barn, once a saw mill, is the old mill wheel, now inoperable (see remark section). Now the farm raises tiny "baby doll" miniature sheep--for Pets!

We'll see more of the chickens in the days to come.
---
The sitting goose is quite lame, I discovered, and seems "down in the dumps" to me as she can only watch the flock's fun and antics from afar.

I watched this poor lame goose painfully and slowly making its way to the fence. From there the flock of chickens could be seen frolicking around the clear fresh pond.

LOL the city girl goes to the farm. You have made it a real joy to follow the story Michelle. You have put life in what I always took for granted since I grew up on a farm, you become callous to things around you. WTG

So the couples are going steady? and the goose is jealous? Great story telling photos. Love the detail, light and colors colors colors (did I say that I love the colors?). Beautifully stated, balanced and annotated. Superb work, as always, Michelle.

This farm looks picture perfect with lots of photo opportunities. I find farm bird life most interesting to watch, yes and they like to mate lots. Love watching all their antics. Terrific image here Michelle and look forward to seeing more.

These are great story-telling images, Michelle! I know I'm going backwards, but I love watching the farm and barnyard scene through your eyes! This belongs in a picture book! Beautiful colors, detail and clarity, and so much going on, yet still such a simple narrative. Excellent work!

Excellent farm photos. "Pairing up" catches my attention the most. Not only the chicken being placed nicely in the composition but the elements like the arched fences, the wooden bench, farm window, the barrel and pail come together to compliment the whole picture. A wonderful image with stunning details and lighting. Congratulations, Michelle

Never knew the lives of chickens would be interesting...maybe they need their own soap opera "As the Egg Turns" or something similar! LOL Great capture and a beautiful farm! Congrats on your win!
