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!
