Weekly Photo Challenge: Face

It’s Spring time so it’s time for chickens:

ISO 1000 50mm f/5.6 1/40
ISO 1000 50mm f/5.6 1/40

Time for cute little faces like these:

ISO 1000 50mm f/5.6 1/60
ISO 1000 50mm f/5.6 1/60

I love taking photos like these.  These particular chickens were hatched in a second grade classroom as part of a life cycles unit and were moved today to a farm.  They grow quickly, but for now they are fluffy and have large feet.

The main challenge for taking photos like these is to catch the chickens at a moment when they are still.  It means a lot of photos end up in the trash bin.

  1. Hey Amy – the second photo reminded me of the way puppies have giant paws that they will grow into – and that chick has some large feet.
    This is my third year enjoying your spring chicks and love the furry feel of these – 🙂


      1. Oh I know how moves can be – and sorry for the sad part – why do adventures and fun international moves have to have the heart stuff of home too? Not fair – wink –
        And there was a sign with the baby chicks at the store

        “Baby chicks are not a cute Easter gift – they are real birds and they grow and carry disease”
        Something like that!


  2. Two stunning photos of this chick. Beautiful hues it has got there, and it looks so fluffy too. Its feet does look large but I suppose they will help it grip on ledges and branches 🙂 Good work on persisting. These photos are very crisp 🙂
