Lemonade ;-)

By SocksAndStuff
Red Grouse mixed with cloud-cover, a strange kind of cocktail. These birds were such good fun! It was really wet and I had my camera in a plastic food bag - one of the free ones from the veg aisle; the clouds were heavy and rolling, the birds were noisy but mostly invisible. Every now and then you'd see one, then it would fly into invisibility again, but you'd know it was somewhere as you could hear its strange calls although you couldn't tell where they were coming from. As the mining company trucks drove very speedily past through the thick foggy cloud cover, I wonder what they thought? At least I may have given them a moments entertainment in their hard days work. I meanwhile was having great fun being crazy so I thought I'd share with you.

It was so disorientating I wasn't sure if I might have wondered onto the tank training ground by mistake - well I survived Wink
