This scene, taken at dawn, reminds me of a painting.

Scratch.

I had never photographed sharptail grouse at the lek with such blustery conditions (a snow advisory was in effect for the morning). You can see the snow drifting on the ground.

And they're rounding corner four, and coming to the finish line, and the male sharptail grouse with its wings extended looks like he is going to win ...

Just a little fight between two males.

Back.
