Forest Grouse

Forest Grouse

Cairngorms National Park

The male capercaillie is an impressive bird to behold at the best of time but when pumped up to defend his territory during the breeding season, they are even more amazing to behold. Strutting around the forest floor, these huge grouse will attack animals far larger than they are if provoked. I used a long lens to photograph this grouse from a respectful distance!
