Golden Hour

By richmowil    
This Red Grouse image was taken on the south east shore of Loch Lochindorb in the Grampians. You could hear the Red Grouse but they were difficult to spot until this light hit them and their heads appeared. Lochindorb is a beautiful place at the best of times and if your in the area Grantown/Aviemore you should pay it a visit. One of my favourite venues for Bird photography but it offers so much more than just this genre.

Many thanks for your votes, comments and user awards which are all much appreciated.

Have a good day and stay safe.

The light has brought out the colours of the plumage so well Bill. I also like the out of focus background which sets the scene so well.
