Roaming Free

Oviedo, Florida
United States of America

Photographer Notes:
The town where I live in Florida is called Oviedo. In recent years it has grown considerably. But despite its growth, the city and its residents have tried to keep its small-town aura by allowing a population of over 30 chickens to roam freely in and around the historic downtown.

What a colorful and beautiful rooster who looks like he is used to posing and strutting around town. Thank you for sharing your part of the world with us and your city's unique way of keeping a small town aura. I think that it is pretty amazing. Terrific capture and so appropriate for the World In Pictures Day theme.

That's cool! Oviedo sounds fun! I'm surprised no dogs have gotten them...but this handsome guy looks pretty intimidating! :) Great colors and details, Linn! Chickens have so much personality. :)

Nice work Linn! I think we might let some chickens loose around here and perhaps lock some of the people up!
