Xativa, Spain.
Out for an early morning wander with the dogs and cat, I came across a fenced corral. The corral had bits and pieces of makeshift buildings and housed a variety of animals from Pigs to Geese and some beautiful Cocks. This capture was taken throught the wire fence, hence the wavy lines. I could not resist this guys colour.
