Proud Mary

Her name could be Mary and she has reasons to be proud of herself and her cutest 'kids'. They all live happy and free at Marechal Carmona Park, Cascais.

I adore hens. Any painting of them always gets my attention ... not sure I've seen many photos of them. This is lovely.

So lovely! What happy and together family! But why you called mom Mary?

'Maria' is very Portuguese name, isnt it?

(Eu, particularmente, detesto que me chamem assim...mesmo tendo ancestrais da terrinha!)

Marieloupe, 'Proud Mary' is a song from my youth days! :-) It was recorded by Creedence Clearwater Revival (and later by Tina Turner too).

I remember people joking in Spain that having Mary as some component of your name was compulsory in the past.

Nice shot.
