Ruffed Grouse in fall setting
While I have seen ruffed grouse before, this pair was more cooperative for photos than most. I only noticed them due to sheer luck - I was driving up a hill and saw their silhouettes around 30 feet up the tree. Turned around at the top of the hill (they were now at eye level) and managed a few minutes of photos before they went on their way.
