"The Famous Grouse"

By teocali
I was lucky to be able to approach this male Red Grouse (Lagopus lagopus) from below, as it perched on the crest of a hillock in the moorlands at Lochindorb in the Cairngorms National Park.
This image is cropped in to about 65%. Taken 22.7m from subject, tripod

Thank you all so much again for your overwhelming support of my last upload, with a special thank you to Carole(Rolepics), Gary(gary_d), Sandy(Daisymaye), Adrian(tomcat) and Richard (MossyOak) for their User Awards. All highly appreciated and valued Smile

This is a very beautiful image of this bird. And a great specimen, because it can come your way in liquid form as well. And then... you better take a good gulp... than a wee dram! Smile

Very well stalked and with a tripod as well to that distance Sylvia. Great selective focus and dof. Personally I might have reduced about half of the foreground as it is wasted and presented it as a Letterbox presentation.

Lovely shot Sylvia.
