Ruffed Grouse by naturalnomad

While hiking at the Newcombe Visitors Interpretive Center, I came upon this female ruffed grouse (Bonasa umbellus) and her chicks. The chicks quickly vanished and the female ran directly at me flapping her wings and hissing surprisingly loud in an effort to distract me from the chicks. It all happened in a matter of seconds and she got so close that I was only able to get a couple head shots off before she disappeared into the the underbrush. I marvel at the intricate details and patterns of nature.

I have spent the better part of my adult life traveling the world searching for adventure and making photographs. The world is full of the marvelous. Nature is my inspiration. Enjoy!
