I like the Willie Dixon's version of the song... and the photo, of course :)

@Vaido: I think you could be right,but it's a close thing with Howling Wolfs version.

Is he blushing because he missed the dawn? :0

@grouser: believe me, if he did he made up for it around lunchtime.

Wow, he's red! Cracking portrait here, Jeff - well done!

Hi lJeff, he would be the King of our small flock of hens ....... I will show them what they miss!!! ..... He is gorgeous - what a color .......How did you get soo close to a r o o s t e r - I remember clinging to my grandmas apron, collecting the eggs and the rooster was around!!
Have a great evening Monika
and thanks for your understanding !!!!

@Shiva: That's a lovely memory, the 600mm lens on my Panny helps a lot, it gets me in close, without without me having to intrude into their space...keep well. ;>)
