A fine case of 'Face Your Fear' if I ever saw one! The hens have taken to perching on the axe these past few nights ... obviously never saw the movie 'Babe'.
Photo: A grab shot, kneeling low to find a suitable angle, as you can see, nothing done to enhance or glorify the scene. I used an SB 800 speed-light mounted on the camera. This was set to 1/4 in manual mode and flash bounced off the ceiling. A slight crop applied in post-production. ISO 400. 1/80 @ f/4.5
