Sunrise: A mysterious blonde

    Newer Older

    Sunrise is one of the palest and most intricately patterned of 28 Ameraucana chicks who arrived on Flint Hill by US Mail from Iowa.

    She was six days old and weighed about two ounces when I photographed her.

    Sunrise turned out to be a boy.

      Awesome shot of this little chick! Love the "eye liner"! DOF ans softness of light is great - keeps your focus on the chick - well done!

      You got a lot of nice comments on this, but I believe it would have been better if you would have shot straight on to the eyes of the chick and not slightly above it.

      Here is what I meant.
      Can you shoot it again? It is a darling chick!
