Red Grouse - Female - 3

Nice female pose, although a touch overlapped by the heather roots. No direct sun

    Almost a good one
  • Dave Webster 5y

    Nice one - shows them to be a lot more colourful than perceived at a distance
  • Still The Oldie 5y

    This is the money shot of the series - sharp, true colours, noble pose, nicely framed by the foliage....

    Tripod on lens or body?

    Martyn - set up on a gimbal, with a special plate on the lens foot - no way would the camera cope with that weight!

    Canon 400mm + 2xTC + 1Ds = 800mm

    You're getting this stalking lark off to a T. This is my favourite of the bunch as well. How close where you when you took this?

    Another cracker. Love the feather detail, and the heather overlap is only slightly annoying but is almost imperceptible. Hell of a set up to lug around the Heather.!

    My fav of the bunch, well framed by the foliage..
    Nice shot :)

    My favourite too - something to do with the pink-ish background, I think

    Cracking shot too

    Congratulations. 400/2.8 & 5DMII combo is quite capable of yielding absolutely fantastic results ! Best of luck.
