Something Red for Ruby Tuesday

This was a rooster that didn't want me to take his photo. He was quite aggressive attacking my pants several times. I guess he was just a little 'territorial'. Around our house you will find roosters all over the place. Some ceramic ones, roosters in wallpaper borders, and metal ones in our garden. I don't know why my wife has a this thing for roosters.

Great image! I love that it is off center and we don't see the whole rooster. Well done.
My Mom used to collect chickens for her kitchen - she has some cute ones.

I like roosters, too. Well, truth be known I also like hens. I just like chickens! You captured this Ruby Tuesday Rooster really well. He's quite a specimen.

Great shot. I like the light, but also you really seem to have caught a sense of his personality. Who knew roosters were so photogenic? Also, your banner photo is simply awesome.

I love the composition of this -- and what a brave soul you are to keep trying while being attacked! I posted a rooster last Tuesday. He was much more cooperative but not as photogenic.

This is a great shot of the rooster. Not only is his comb red, but his neck feathers are that coppery red color that I love so much.

See my post here, and/or my whole blog I Was Born2Cree8.

He's got one serious look on his face. Great shot!

I love roosters because they are COOL! Great shot... and I might add I believe it was ME that took that shot... but I'll let you take the credit! Love you!

Great photo of this rooster. Coincidentally I was at someone's house yesterday and in the kitchen I was surrounded by all things rooster. She said her mom collects roosters.

Thanks for visiting my blog, and Happy Ruby Tuesday (a day late)

That guy has the attitude like the Robert De Niro character down:

"Are You Looking At Me?!"

I wonder if his 'tude translates well in the hen house?

Agreat photo of Ruby the Rooster. I must admit he has a bit of a 'look' in his eye!

Columbo said...

Yes he did have that look in his eye, didn't he? Thanks again to everyone for the nice comments.
