Shot in Nova Scotia, early last fall. A morning shot and the exposure was f/5.6 and shutter speed at 1/125 second. Fill flash was used.

Thanks Tammy, Casey, Laura, Judith, Jill and Marcie. It's some sort of Pheasant but the exact name escapes me. What attracted me to it was the cranky look on his face..Sort of like a James Cagney look..That's where the title comes from.
