Ptarmigan Ridge, Mount Baker, Washington, USA
Canon Powershot SD500 | 1/320 sec | F/4.9
Amazing shot. Love the background as well of cause the main subject.
What a beautiful shot. Perfect choice of depth of field. I remember those pretty birds well. I lived in Bellingham Manyyy years ago, and worked at the Mt. Baker ski area. Such beautiful scenery.
nice photo. I like it:)
great perspective and colors!
Great shot. I love both DOF and the framed subject. Well captured!
stunning! i just discovered your site.. i’ll most ceratinly be coming back again and again.. 🙂
Great DOF and color! It is often so hard to get a good picture of these birds. Good job.
Really, really nice shot. The framing and depth of focus just seem perfect, and the marvelous detail in the coloring of both bird and perchis lovely.
Great shot as usual 😉
I love the DOF and the background, and the best part is, you captured this bird from a great angle using SD500 (a pocket camera .. how far are you from this bird?). It’s hard to take a picture of this bird. really great picture.
Wow. That’s great.
Is this bird a Lagopus mutus?
I am bigger than a Japanese Lagopus mutus.
Socks love the foot which they wore.
This bird is actually a Lagopus leuceurus. The Lagopus mutus is the rock ptarmigan and is not normally found in Washington state according to my Peterson Field Guide. The rock ptarmigan is darker and doesn’t have the characteristic white tail.
And yes I was remarkably close to this ptarmigan when I took a picture with my SD500 — a mere 3 feet away! 🙂
Wow lol is that even real? Looked so fake at first glance.
Great shot !
Beautiful shot !!
