[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This female White-tailed Ptarmigan (Lagopus leucurus) was eating berries with her 3 joung chicks. Foto taken in low light conditions in the evening. On Top of the world highway on the way to Alaska.
These bird are very well camouflaged with their brown-white colours. If they would not mouve you would not see them in most of the cases.

Hello Pierre,
Judging just from your image I would never have guessed that this shot was taken in a low light situation. The gorgeous plumage this Ptarmigan wears is shown in exceptional detail and wonderful lighting. I can only imagine how hard it must be to find one of these well camouflaged birds in the brush when they are sitting completely still. Well done!!

Hello Pierre
Wonderful shot of this amazing bird.
great sharpness and colour.
best wishes,
