Chickens, Early Morning

Photograph info: This shot was taken on the fly while driving early Thursday morning. (Yes, I stopped the car.) I mistakenly underexposed it but liked the result. You'll still see all the detail if you view the photo in a dark room.

Camera settings and post-processing: Shot with the Canon EOS 5D Mark II and the Canon 70-200mm f/2.8L IS lens at 200mm, f/3.5, 1/400s, ISO 160. No post-processing.

Thank you for visiting Durham Township!



Nice shot. She is looking so proud in a way, as she should :-)

Have a lovely day.

This looks like an old English painting.Only an artist's brush could capture feathers so white,smooth and soft.
Glad you caught this beauty in the early morning.

That is one fine looking bird.

Stunning--the white bird against the dark background!

Sometimes one early bird gets another early bird. This one looks like fine porcelain. Are you sure she moved? :)

David Tinnon: Only you can come up with those comments.
Told you once before- Leno needs you.

Out from the lingering shadows of night,
Steps the early bird with feathers so white.
To leave the coop took no cajole,
For the leader of the Free Range Patrol.

Hey, Jenny, Jenny, this blond kid and her drive-by-single-frame-docu-dramas are a so-appreciated source of inspiration, for which the proper repayment has always fallen some 900 and some odd words short. (I'd be happy to help Leno out, does he post photos too?)

Excellent as always!

Photograph is hugely underexposed and comments hugely sycophantic.
