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 – 🙂

  3. 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 🙂
