NF Photo 110615 at Ånnsjön, The Swedish Northern mountain range.


Hannes praktdräkt kan ha vilka färger som helst. Men honan är ganska alldaglig. Tyvärr satt jag i ett gömsle så jag kunde inte smyga mig närmare.
The males breeding plumage can come in pretty much all colors. But the female seem to be rather plain. Sadly enough I was in a hiding so I could not get closer.

A great video I found on youtube.

  1. Beautiful coloring on the birds and nice to see them in the grass which looked like good habitat for them.
