    Thanks [​IMG] You should definitely try it too!!! And be sure to post the pics!!

    I'm addicted to taking close-ups of them now. I swear, my one Australorp will strike poses....it's like taking actors' head-shots [​IMG] I HAVE noticed quote a few chickens cast in commercials lately....hmmm....chickens as trained-pet-actors..... LOL

    Yesterday I tried to have a close moment with my barred rock, and she decided to climb up to the top of my head!!! She was pecking my earings!!! I had to get my DH to stop welding and come help her get off my head! Thank god he didnt bring the camera with him! Soooooo....I gotta be careful with the close ups!!! LOL!!!

    LOL...I've had a few of those moments myself!! My BR pulled a stud earring right out of my ear once! Thank GOD I grabbed it before she ATE it!

    If you have a camera that you can put a close-up lens on, you don't have to be quite SO physically close to get the shot...much safer [​IMG]
