The Kentucky State Fair: Roosters

Today we went to the Kentucky State Fair in Louisville.  It was huge and reminded me of the fairs where I grew up in Spokane.  We didn’t even venture near the rides (much to Thor’s disappointment) and instead only visited the animals.  For some reason you can never have enough pictures of:

But most fascinating to me were the roosters.  Did you know that they come in so many different varieties and colors?  I had no idea.  I got a little carried away perhaps with the photo’s but here in no particular order are some roosters.

I don’t know why but I really found them beautiful.  The colors and patterns were hard to capture through the cages but I love them.  I’m not going to decorate my house in roosters but now I think I have a rooster fascination…
What animal do you find beautiful?
