wildlifeiyear,

aladyforty,


Some years ago I went by myself on a very long hike in a northern mountain area. I had all the equipment and used map and compass. I wasn't exactly lucky with the weather. It can change rapidly up there

I was trying to put up my antique tent. Suddenly the sun break through, just a few beams, but enough to lighten up at spot with a Rock Ptarmigan (Lagopus muta), a northern grouse. It was a fantastic scenery. I'll never forget it.

So I was quite happy this time around, having a camera at hand, in a similar situation

Thank you

Torgny

Hi Torgny

Lovely natural captures and it shows that lovely purple section of feathers on the side of the bird.

Thanks for sharing your story of when you were on the hike some years ago. You described it, and I can just imagine it!

I appreciate your posts!

Paul

Paul,

Thank you, I remember a picture of you standing next to a tent. Those long hikes can also develop adventurously. I remember once - "quirk, quirk" - Have to treat that rockingchair with some lubricant
