The feral beast disrupts the photo shoot

So there I was, lying face down in the dirt, 
doing my best to capture the essence of my chickens.



The feral beast took exception to my activities.



 First he came over and sat next to me.



 That wasn't disruptive enough, so he crawled up on my back
and began to whisper in my ear.



JCC: I'm much better looking than they are. Take a picture of me.



JCC: I'll curl up here until it's my turn.

  2. It appears the feral beast has been tamed. And why have I never noticed that the color of your hair and his fur kind of match?

  4. BE CAREFUL!!! BARN CATS ARE NOT FRIENDLY!!! Unless, of course, they love you and you serve a great purpose like providing a warm bed in the middle of the yard.

    He is right, he is much more pleasing to look at that a chicken eyelid. I love the way he shoes his love for you. How could you not spend the rest of the day photographing him?

    What great pictures! I can't believe you were able to take them. Did you hold the heavy camera out with your left hand/arm or did you use your phone? The last picture is so damned sweet!

    1. I used the heavy camera, propped on the ground.
      p.s. because I'm the last person on earth without a phone that takes pictures.

  18. Johnny's cover is blown. He is a snuggly dollbaby. The chickens are laughing at him and plotting.

  20. These pictures are wonderful! Does your camera have a rotating screen so you can see what the camera sees? If not, you really nailed the aim. My favorite was the shadow picture until I got to the last one. That one tells such a story. Love these!
