Kiki on the Golden Leaves

Kiki is our Barred Rock chicken. This is based on a photo I took in our front yard in a sunny morning in October. Kiki was walking on the fall golden leaves. The red enormous comb is Kiki's trademark. I tried to enhance the bright golden foliage and Kiki's bright pink comb. She has very fine black and white stripes on every feather. So she looks like a fuzzy, purple bird depending on the light. I used the gold in the reflected light of the right side of her dark purple body.
