Red Grouse surveys his kingdom

Sometimes, red grouse can be the most confiding of birds and this male on the moors above Pateley Bridge was one such bird. He allowed a very close approach and I was able to photograph him from the car from a very close range using a variety of lenses for different effects. I really like this image of him surveying his kingdom stretching out before him in the last half hour of daylight.
