6/7 I'm told this is a Greater Sage Grouse feather, but based on the location found, I'm inclined to go with Dusky Grouse, or maybe Ruffed. Unless someone picked it up elsewhere and dropped it.

Looks like a Ruffed Grouse feather to me, but what do I know being from Pennsylvania and never having seen any other type of grouse.

And I keep looking for them and never finding them. Grouse and owls, I can research, be in the right places at the right times, drive 100s of miles, never see one. It's luck of the moment.

Okay, this week's theme...LIGHT, so similar to soft, it can be the lighting of the photo you like, the sun, the light of the moon, how the light falls on something...

1/7

Ruffed Grouse will sit tight until you get real close.
I walked about 30 yards into the woods in the summer with my son. A Ruffed Grouse flew out from some rocks under a bush.
Another was under the bush and it flew away 2 steps closer.
I said "that's the State Bird". Walked another 20 feet and pointed to the mountain laurel and said "that's the State Flower". A few seconds later a whitetail went running out of the mountain laurel and I said "that's the state mammal, are we done here now?"

Yet I've spent hundreds of hours in the fall hunting in those same woods and only ever spotted one Grouse.
It was right on the side of the trail. It looked like just another rock until it flew away. Rocks don't usually do that.

Banzai, that's nice!

LS, yeah, as much as I've chased grouse around, the Ruffed have eluded me. That being said, when I have found grouse, well, they aren't much sharper than a chicken. Tasty AND stupid is a hard way to go through life!

Thanks. That photo was taken about 12 hours before I posted it.

This next pic was taken in 2000 on my 35mm SLR using Fuji Velvia transparency (slide) film. That film stock could make almost anything pop and I used it for principal photography on a book I wrote on old Datsun sports cars.

I expect to see James Bond running out to hop in!

2/7 Taken yesterday and the first one was from Saturday. Feels like fall but some trees are holding out.
