Proud Capercaillie

Here's the mysterious track maker that I wrote about in the last post. Not exactly this one but a similar. Unfortunately I didn't see the right one when he made his show to attract some female examples because that is a fantastic experience of the nature. Usually in the early morning.

I really love this photo and wish that I had taken it, but I found it on the net. But I am proud when I tell you that I had the courage to wrote to the professional photographer Lars Peterson and asked if I could use one of his photos. He was very kind and gave me a quick answer that it was ok. He also told me that I was right when I thought the tracks was made from the wings of a capercaillie.

 (Capercaillie... What a wonderful word, much more beautiful than the Swedish word: tj√§der)

Ella, this bird is amazing! I have NEVER seen one. And, the little tracks in the snow...I would NEVER have guessed.

I am so glad you got to use this photograph. Thanks for sharing such a beautiful bird. .

What an amazing bird! Looks like a mix of a duck and a turkey! Very cool!

I saw you added a photo to our Color My World board, but unfortunately it does not fit in the challenge for the color blue and I will have to remove it. But, do try again!

So nice to meet you!
