1203_0243 Sharp-tailed Grouse

I knew the Sharp-tailed Grouse would be on their lek at dawn, displaying. Using my car as a blind, I had about an hour with them. Although I've photographed sharptails many times, there is always a chance for something different. Tail up, wings outstretched, feathers ruffled, feet dancing... the only thing I can't share in a still image are the cackling vocalizations.
