bird on a hot tin roof

What a long day! Did a workshop reading for a new play, came home to rest, post today's picture, grab a quick bite and off to a TV show shoot in about an hour. What fun!

I know the fierce cock was a couple of days ago but I couldn't help posting another feathered friend. The gloomy sky provided the most excellent backdrop. This bird was sitting on the tip of my roof. Most birds fly away at the sound of my coming footsteps. This one stayed as if knowing I was a stalking photographer.

Is it me or the birds I take pictures of tend to be on the fierce-looking side?

nice shot Edwin and nice title of a new play ;-) what's with the sky, is it cloudy and white or is it photoshop?

The sky was gray so after I used PS to give the bird a bit of detail and contrast, the sky turned white. It's one of those 'accidents' that turned out really well. The bird didn't look as striking in the original.

Very cool photo. Your PS efforts worked out very well. Maybe he's stalking photographers, not the other way around?... And yes the cock looks rather fierce too, like he's think about attacking the photographer.
