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.

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?

Man I'd love to see a fight.... a natural fight. In my neck of the woods lots of cock fighting goes on (illegally) with lots of betting. Sad and revolting to me but it is what it is.

Outstanding Kev!
Hey Kev, my better-half is a big Oly person. Did I ever share the link to her stuff?
You might like. She's one of those who truly believes it is the person and not the sensor size.
I think she does well-
