I have never seen a bird like this one, with blue feet (!) and a cute tuft, I like him!
Kind greetings, Everharda
I think good planning for postion and timing helps take some of the luck out of wildlife photography. Yes I was using a hide and the set-up I use is Canon 50D, Sigma 150-500.
Thank you, me too I think I startled him/her.
Thank you, it was taken at Bempton Cliffs, Yorkshire. It just drifted up on the updraft of the cliffs just in front of my camera, very lucky.
I tried for Black Grouse at Tulloch Moor but the light and the distance foiled me.
Sorry, I forgot to to say welcome to the group, please feel free to invite anyone you think may like to contribute.
