Those EYES! WOW. Such perfect detail here, too. Val, this is my favorite rooster image ever. What a fine job you did here.

It's a gorgeous day here this morning. I so want to go on a photo shoot. Maybe I'll go to the local pond and see if the geese have had their babies yet this year?

YES! I'll make it a good day! Great idea!

Marvelous close-up of this handsome fellow, Val! Great portrait with amazing detail, clarity and color! I had a chance this past year to shoot chickens and roosters at a friends and found them amazing - and very challenging to keep up with in the barnyard!

We have different tastes in men, Val! LOL!! I find his comb rather, um, ugly! hehee!! You sure didn't miss a mole or pimple on him, with such great detail!! Chooks are such great creatures to capture, especially the roosters!

Thanks so much everyone - sure appreciate the stop-by - really sorry I missed so many of your wonderful photos this past month. My Mom, altho still smiling and behaving like the trooper she is, is progressively feeling the effects of the disease. Time to stay close. Thanks again for your support in so many ways..... ~Val
