Rooster Weather Vane/ Ruby Tuesday


This busy rooster monitors wind direction...which is quite a job on a windy day!

Cute silver detail make a great contrast with the red roof.
Wonderful picture!

Love it, EG. the snow on the roof, the red chimney (?) and the red comb on the rooster is just the right touch. MB

It would make me dizzy twirling around. We have had plenty of wind lately too.
Happy RT EG.

Does he go "Cock-a-doodle-do" when the wind hits him in the face? Great shot, EG!

I like the way you have zoomed on this weather vane.

Felisol said...

Great weather vane. Great winter picture. The rooster seems to be in excellent shape too, even after all the "weather" we have had this winter.

Carletta said...

A unique little silver rooster atop his red domain!

Robin said...

He looks quite puffed up and proud - reminds me of Foghorn Leghorn a bit :).

Michelle said...

Love the little hint of red on the top of the roosters head (if I wasn't a city girl I would probably know what that red thing was called).

The rooster stands out proudly, his red comb perfect for RT. The red chimney is also ruby, and much larger. It is nice to have a weathervane with a stylish chicken on top to help us determine which way the wind blows. Nice capture!

Patti said...

Roosters are red, violets are blue..

I don't know why that popped into my head!

Nice ruby finds on the roof.

Happy Ruby Tuesday!

Is this one of yours? I've always like 'em myself. They're fun to watch.

Here is MY R T If you come visit...scroll down below my Heads or Tails entry to find my Ruby Tuesday. :o)

Leora said...

Brrr... shiny rooster doesn't get cold, does he? He's just dancing round and round up there.

Mama Zen said...

What a fantastic shot!

Carolyn Ford said...

This red is so cool! And, so bold against the white snow! Great shot!

I love this weather vane and you have captured it perfectly!

Lorna said...

I've always loved rooster weather vanes, rooster plaques, rooster trays, rooster book covers but never actually owned any. This photo makes me remember why I was drawn to them but doesn't help me understand how I could hanker after them without acquiring them. I worked it off by giving roostery things to my mother.

Maria said...

Great photo and the rooster make a nice contrast. Wounderful:)

You want to climb up there and get that for me? I collect roosters and would really like it.

Paulie said...

How neat to photograph it in winter when the contrasting colors are so bright.

sonia a. mascaro said...

Love that rooster monitors wind direction. Great photo!

George said...

I really like this beautiful picture, although I feel sorry for the rooster that has to work day and night!

Kiki said...

Wonderful shoT! Excellent RT!

Jim said...

Do people ever shovel the snow off their roofs? I like your bubbling water above.
Happy RT! Thank you for peeking in on my dog's mess. :-)
