The Rooster is King

Not the Friendliest Creature on the Farm

And not the Friendliest of Creatures on the Farm

I visited a local farm and took the opportunity to meet the reigning rooster. He was none too happy when I pointed my lens at his coop of hens, and even less happy when I took his photograph. Downright surly, I would say.

    He looks like he has a light dusting of snow. Very nice!

      It was quite cold inside the barn. Might be frost!

    I’m reminded of the rooster we used to have. He was very unfriendly and would attack people and even chase cars.

      This rooster had serious leanings toward an attack. I got out of there fast.

    Wonderful. Nice focus on the rooster’s eye. Excellent detail.

    He does look like he’s pouting. Wonderful ‘portrait’ (if I can call it that…). Excellent detail!

    What character… that’s a fantastic image!

    You definitely captured him as ‘King of the Roost.’ Roosters can cop an attitude. Nice shot. 🙂

    My girls would think him handsome!
    We had a cockerel once, he was a total psychopath!
    He had to be ‘dispatched’

      Psychopath might be applicable in this case, too! 🙂

    Ha, I know that feeling! I don’t like to be photographed either, I prefer to be on the other side of the lens:)

    This image brought a “chuckle” — a great capture with lots of ATTITUDE!

    I love the black and white with the red. He does look peeved though. Better not go visiting again too soon.
