I was going back through some of the images I took this past summer and came across this photo of a Greater Sage-Grouse I photographed in July.
Finding the Greater Sage-Grouse can be difficult because they can blend into their habitat so well but the flock I photographed were close to the road and out where they were visible. I was fortunate to see Greater Sage-Grouse several times last summer in the Centennial Valley of Montana and in Clark County, Idaho.
Even when I am not aiming my lens at these large upland game birds I am enchanted by their shape, plumage and the habitat they live in. I hope that one day I will be able to visit a lek while they are displaying. I need to put that on my bucket list.
Life is good.
