Singapore may be an urban jungle, but that hasn’t stopped a couple wild roosters from popping up in HDB estates and neighbourhood parks before.

If you didn’t know it yet, roosters are more commonly sighted in coastal parks like Sungei Buloh Wetland Reserve and Pasir Ris Park.

Eric Bronson, a photographer in Singapore, had the luck of running into a majestic rooster, sporting bright, bold, and beautiful plumage.
