I am still searching through my images of Ptarmigan from the other day.
I came across this image of the female who is soaking up the last rays of the days sunshine.
I love the gentle features of this bird, and the pose here makes me smile.
What made this image all the more rewarding was that I am a distance of 4.2m according to my exif data but the bird had got so used to me that she was not even looking in my direction but instead was looking around at her surroundings. What a great experience and one that I am keen to repeat soon.
