A strange addiction

For the past year or so I have been wondering why I keep photographing Red Grouse. I was looking into my key-wording and I must have nearly 2000 images of these smashing, but somewhat in my opinion comical, birds and so to the  other day when the light was bringing out the reds, pinks and oranges on the moor, I thought to myself I know I will go and check out some new habitat that looks good fro Grouse. It was then that I questioned myself and thought “why surely its time for something else”.

It wasn’t and off I went to get some more Red Grouse shots. What can I say? Maybe I just wanted my regular fix of quizzical grouse behaviour. Either way I took some shots and returned home happy. Sometimes its just that simple.

  1. Such delightful…and yes…comical birds, Marcus. It took my hubby & I three holidays in the highlands to see these properly! The first time at Findhorn valley we were interupted by a mini bus of Germans – and the heads of grouse and chicks fled not to be seen again. The seond time a similar experience with more holiday makers! Then the third time was in late October, on a beautiful day, we had peace at FV and several red grouse and it was bliss with all those superb colours coming out so very well. I love their sounds too! A cracking shot, Marcus and…keep succumbing to the addiction – why not!
