Hi Peter, beautiful colours, very good on focus, excellent POW, like that low angle, well done.

TFS, Anders.

Sharp and clear on the bird nice detail in the glossy sheen and on the bright red crest. Background just about perfectly blurred out, foreground nicely sharp. Deserves a BIG smiley.

Hello Peter,
This is a specie that I don't know about. What a strange look :) I like this nice composition, details, colors and exposure, This BG is superb! Thanks,

Hi Peter,

a superb shot with excellent focus and exposure,the colors,as well of the grouse and the BG are great,the only but small minor is that imho the crop on the undersite is a bit to tight,otherwise very well done and tfs
