Pinterest Photography Challenge Post #1: Having a moment with a chicken


This week was the start of the SITS Girls and Click it up a notch’s Pin-tastic Pinterest Photography Challenge.  Click here to read all about it.

Today’s assignment was to take advantage of the “golden hour.”  A storm is rolling in right now so instead of waiting for that perfect sunlight I went outside and took advantage of the pre-storm lighting, cool, clean-smelling air, and the creation of an egg.

Since getting rid of our mean rooster the girls have started to warm back up to us humans.  I think they’re thankful he’s not here to bite their necks anymore, if you know what I mean.  Anyhow, I caught Goldie while she was preoccupied laying an egg, wondered around the yard, and snapped the budding persimmon tree.  When I got back to the coop there was her precious egg.  It’s funny when you’re there, with them, it IS like a birth.  There’s a need to be silent and to respect the silence.  A need to give her some space to breathe and be in that moment.  It doesn’t matter if you’re a chicken or a human.   

Without further ado, here are the photos I took this afternoon.
