The last time I had an encounter with one of these it was painful. Aggressive things.
Cracking capture Cheryl and a great timed shot

Thanks all.

Have a few others, including some different looks entirely, especially those without snow. Will upload another some time soon.

No idea what Jouco is saying, I may need a translator.

A black bird against white snow is a bit of a nightmare to expose but you've done a great job, here, holding detail at both ends of the histogram.

Playing catch-up and looking through a range of images at once rather than over time as they are uploaded can be very interesting sometimes - this is one of those cases! It's evident that the experience with the capercaillie made a big impression on you and I love how you've realised this in the various ways you've portrayed him! I also know exactly where you're coming from on the "to analyse or not to analyse" front... Smile
