Thanksgiving chicken
Lens: Super Multi Coated Macro Takumar 50mm f4 Camera: K-x ISO: 200 Aperture: F5.6

This chicken isn't quite as majestic as the eagle recently previewed, but why not share. My brother has a few chickens--I was able to get a nice pic of one...those suckers don't stay still for very long, which makes it hell catching manual focus.

I love the color contrast of the chicken and the background and the vibrancy! And beautiful focus! Very cool picture.

Like "Thanksgiving" I'm not a Turkey at this time of year.

Indeed a good sharp shot, well done.

Chickens are kinda' cool looking when you take a closer look. Beautiful feather colors and interesting features. Now turkeys, they're just plain ugly! The Rosanne Barr's of the fowl world! Nice capture.
