Default Natural Camouflage

My wife Sharon spotted this guy in the lot across from us.

You can't see me!

Shows how good his camo is. He/she obviously thought it was a cloak of invisability as he let me slowly walk up. When he did get a little nervous he just went deeper into the blackberry with a silly look on his face.

Best we could find in the book is that it's a Rock Ptarmigan, 'not' seen this far south. (Neither were the Snowy Owls. ) Changes to a speckled brown after the snow.

More like unnatural camouflage - it is supposed to snow in winter, isn't it? Nice capture
