Here is another image from the 14 frame sequence of this rooster flying over a water-filled ditch. This dominant bird has a territory right near the road and has given me many opportunities for stills and video, much of which I have not yet processed. Be warned, you have not seen the last of this bird :D .

Nice frame in this great series although i am growing a little curious for a different comp mate. Lets see a landscape. I read your response about not being 'ballsy' enough to shoot this vertical so now i am curious to see a landscape unless of course there is a stop sign or something on the side of the road?
Thanks for looking,
Michael Ashbee

The grasses make a beautiful complement to the bird for a lovely composition. Such a handsome fellow too!
