Taken just a few weeks ago at the end of March at a Black Grouse lek in Northern Finland.
This was from the last day of five days in the hide in falling snow. The action was fast and furious as the Blackcocks challenged each other for ascendancy - and thereby the ultimate right to mate with the females.
Lots of powder and feathers flying
