A Chicken for Competition

I have entered this photo in a competition that has “macro or close up” as a theme:

ISO 200 50mm f/4 1/250

I titled it, “In the Blink of an Eye”.  It was taken with a 50mm lens and then cropped. I did some sharpening, but didn’t mess with the color because I liked the way the color came out in the camera.

Wish me luck, but feel free to leave constructive comments.

    1. Actually, it is part of its eye that closes over, but the chicken can still see. Some birds have this to help them see while eating. That way they are not getting anything on their eyeball while eating. In this case, it was mostly, but not all the way, shut. I have other bird pictures that show this, I just think it is a neat adaptation.
