i was lucky enough to see one of these in the wild in the highlands of Scotland a couple of years ago...didn't have a camera with me then though! Superb collection of shots, each one with an excellent POV and good sharp focus. I would love to see this lekking for myself, it sounds fascinating..

Excellent assemblage showing the capercaillie's dance to impress females. I like the way you composed this picture with the different sequences of the dance. This bird lives also in my country, but is seen very seldom. Early morning seems to be the best time to be lucky to see it.
Thanks and best regards
You have presented a very interesting cologe. As far as I know it is not easy to come close to these birds. You did it well and captured these nice images without using a teleobjective.
amazing set of pics, please post one of them in a larger size, TFS Ori

Wat een uitslover is dit zeg. Ik hoop voor hem en z'n soort dat er een vrouwtje in de buurt was.
Je hebt deze reeks prachtig vast kunnen leggen ondanks de bomen die misschien af en toe in de weg stonden. Prachtig om de verschillende poses te zien en het is inderdaad erg jammer dat er geen geluid bij is.
