They aren't the most attractive creatures on the planet, but from a photographic standpoint they have a lot to offer. Color, texture, form...all the basic ingredients of a good photographic subject, plus iridescent feathers as an added bonus.
February here in MI is usually full of grey, drab days. So I like to post some color in the mid-winter months to tide everyone over until spring. Hopefully, this shot will....fit the bill. ;)
