Another of the capercaillie.

Not sure how this looks because the bird was walking slightly downhill. I did look to rotate the canvas so the trees looked more upright, but that actually made it look worse. So leave it how it was shot Grin

As the bird is so prominent in the shot the slight slope went unnoticed untill I read your narritive - doesn't detract from a super image IMO - Ina

Ooooh, I do like this. Definitely not a 'bird on a stick'.

Still time for me to acquire a shotgun, then? Wink

Oh, and have an RC. This seems to have been hanging around at 29 for a while. How irritating. Wink

Looks fine to me in terms of lean -- trees are often at all kinds of angles and the ground even more so. Smile
