Kramer's neck feathers

This is one of my new favorite photos. The lighting is divine and egad, Kramer's feathers are so perfect and beautiful. He's one of about a dozen roosters at the santuary. He looks amazingly like his father (Kramer is from an accidental clutch!). Arturo, his father, recently died of Marek's disease, which has been negatively affecting the flock, including previously vaccinated birds ever since we did a rescue from a cockfighting operation. Arturo was a gentlemanly rooster, one of about three of the roosters. Kramer is a stereotypical juvenile male and is more interested in sex than courtship. But, he sure does have lovely neck feathers.

Thanks, everyone!

@Life With Dogs: I work with two cameras, both canons - an eos 20d and an eos 40d. They are both decent cameras. :)
