Capercaillie

Just returned from a wonderful wildlife encounter with this Scottish Capercaillie. I have been trying to photograph these for over a year and knew time was running out again if I was to see them before the lek starts.

This bird was actually in a tree before I noticed it, flying off into the woods. What a sight to see this huge bird flying low through the trees. Eventually it came close to the track again and so was able to take a series of images without disturbing it.
