Ptarmigan in Mid Change

This is the last image I'm going to post from Saturday's walk. I came over a slight rise to spot this fellow nestled in the snow. He looked at me and I looked at him. He stayed put and I carefully dislodged my camera from the clip on my rucksack, removed the lens cap, switched it on, made frantic signs at hubby not to move or say a word, and somehow managed to get a few decent shots of this beautiful bird in its Spring colours. Thank you Mr Ptarmigan!
How gorgeous. Love that red eyebrow

Never heard of these but it sure is an interesting looking bird. Is it a grouse of some sort?

Super capture, and a very obliging bird. I had a conversation with a very close female blackbird yesterday. She was collecting worms in the patch I had just been weeding. She stayed quite a while but I didn't have a camera nearby.

I guess it's trying to be camouflage in the snow and the rocks. Nice capture.

What a beauty! And so interesting that she waited for you to get ready and then posed!
