This is picture #28 of a weekly Photo Challenge that I set myself – there is no particular theme. The idea behind the challenge is to get myself outside into the Cumbrian countryside, at least once a week.

The term ‘rooster’ originated in the United States as a puritan euphemism to avoid the sexual connotation of the original English ‘cock’, and is widely used throughout North America, as well as Australia and New Zealand.
A rooster crows only when it sees the light. Put him in the dark and he’ll never crow. I have seen the light and I’m crowing.Muhammad Ali
