The quick and the nerdiest

This is Sparkle. I intended to take a nice portrait-snapshot of this pretty, silver-feathered chicken, to show the clarity in her eyes, the bright calm way she sometimes expresses her curiosity. But the nerd in her refused to allow the cool-girl chicken to be photographed. She kept chasing the camera (an iPhone). "What me? You want to take my picture? My picture? Let me get closer then, no a little closer even. How do I look? How do I look? What do you have inside that camera anyway?" So this is what we get, a portrait of Sparkle as nerd, a young chicken in motion, getting her picture took.
