A pair of rooster portraits.
I’ve been wanting to find some chickens to photograph forever. (Yes, I know, my wish list isn’t very lofty) Finally got the chance this past weekend, and as a bonus got this handsome guy too.
Spent a few days in Indiana this past week where I found myself traveling the countryside. Mostly all I found to photograph was lots of corn, soybeans, roadside weeds and barns. But I did drive by this field with one lone — and very bashful — alpaca. He gave me this “what are you looking at?” stare and then trotted off into another unapproachable pasture. I only got one shot!
I obviously have too much free time on my hands. I went outside to water some potted flowers and found this snail. So I went back and got my camera, then knelt down (on rocks no less) in the sun for a half hour patiently waiting for the snail to “do something”. I staged the yellow flower hoping the snail would stick its head out to investigate and finally it did.
