Hi Marie,

Nice shot of the parent and child. You caught a good moment. I love the expression on the chick's face. Wonderfully natural picture.

Hi Marie,
you have posted a photo of a bird I know we have here in Alberta but have yet to see.Very nice indeed.Your exposure is a little over bright but for that it is really a good shot and seeing a young bird with it's parent is so very sweet.Thank you for giving us a chance to see these lovely little birds. Bob

Bonjour Marie,
Great capture of the Willow Grouse with its chick. It looks like a a shower of sand has obscured the view of the chick a little, which is natural. Nice composition, sharpness and lighting.
Well done and TFS!
Ivan

Hola Marie,
Bonita escena familiar, me encanta como se ven revolacndose en el polvo, dandose ese peculiar baño de tierra. Simpática.
Saludos
Hernán

Salut Marie,
Tu as une belle prise. C'est pas très courrant de voir ces oiseaux si au sud je crois? J'aime bien l'interaction, que démontre ta photo, entre l'adulte et junior...
Suberbes couleurs et ta profondeur de champ est excellente.

A beautiful shot of this birds. The composition is wonderful, with excellent POV and DOF.
Best wishes,
Achim

This is interesting to see, and I think the exposure and contrast are better than in the picture of the adult bird by itself.
