Animals are some of my favorite subjects to photograph. I’d like to spend the next week or so sharing some animal shots with you.

This first guy is Brewster Rooster. Isn’t he a handsome fellow? I like the piece of clover stuck to his beak and the drip of dew on the end of his beak.

Brewster belongs to Scio artist Raven OKeefe and her husband Ian Caldicott, who trains sheep-herding dogs.

Raven can’t wait until Brewster molts his tail feathers in the fall so she can use them in some of her art projects.

    Thanks, Stella! Yep, that’s his wattle.

  3. Great shot 🙂 He is an handsome fellow indeed !!
