I like this because you also have a good composition-al (I'm making up new words!) environment with it. Sets it apart/tells a story! nice work!

I appreciate the comment

A serious RED power going on here Kev. Great shots.

Thanks Doc. I'm not up on chickens but I figure they're roosters and am wondering why there was 3 together in a remote spot and they weren't kicking the crap out of each other?

Yay! How can one not absolutely love this species? Such wonderful birds. In Europe they are one of the most charismatic birds.

Wow Ronn,
That certainly is an amazingly beautiful bird. Very nice capture.

Thanks, Mike! My wife and I were lucky to be able to photograph them with the snow background that contrasted so well with their brilliant blue color.
