day 25, 30 paintings in 30 days challenge
here's looking at you, kid, acrylic and ink
for some odd reason which i have yet to discover,
i love roosters. maybe it's the pride with which
they seem to hold their head up high,
as if they pay no heed to how funny looking
they are. or perhaps, it is the silly wattle.
well, you may or may not be interested to know
that the smithsonian did a study on why roosters
have wattles by studying the behavior of hens around
roosters with regular wattles, without a wattle and
with a wattle that flops around quite a bit. the winner,
that is the most attractive at least in the estimation of hens
is the one with the regular wattle.
i love roosters even more now that i know this.
