not everyone appreciates me taking pictures
It finally happened. I knew if I kept taking pictures long enough that someday I would happen up on an area to get pictures, and someone would ask me to leave.
One day recently after I had been out capturing images of a beautiful PA sunrise I decided I would stop by a local historical site and take some pictures of the beautiful flowers and covered bridge at this site. For those familiar with our area, it was Historic Poole Forge. While I was taking pictures, I saw this colorful rooster to my right. I really did not think much about it, so I continued taking pictures. After shooting several photos, I decided I would return to the car and get a different lens for the camera. As I was walking toward the car, I noticed the rooster was following me. When I was at the car, I looked back to see this rooster making a beeline for my ankles. The moment he saw me turn my head he immediately stopped and started nonchalantly pecking at the ground like nothing was going on. I turned again to get the lens and saw him start coming at me again. I again turned, and when I did, he stopped in his tracks, although he was now much closer to the aforementioned ankles. I started fussing at him as he casually continued pecking at the ground. I didn't want to try turning away from him again, since he was so close, so I said to him, "Okay, I give up. You win this time. I will leave now, but I will be coming back." So I got in my car without taking my eyes off of him, and to add insult to injury, as I backed out and started heading to the exit, he started crowing loudly. I think he was mocking me. It was his way of saying "I guess I showed him who was boss."
Before closing, I would like to pose a question to those who are reading this now. Does anyone know what kind of rooster this is? I Googled it, but could not find an exact match. Your help would be appreciated with identifying it. Thanks!
Oh, and by the way, I have not gone back yet to Poole Forge, so I guess you can say the rooster is still ruling the roost. :-)
