I photographed this using a Canon 6D with a Canon 100-400 mm. lens.
This was Photographed at Buena Vista Grasslands at Plover, Wisconsin.
These amazing birds put on a song and dance show that is amazing to attract a female to the booming grounds. to find out more about these birds in Wisconsin and what is being done to help continue their existence here is a helpful link. http://www4.uwsp.edu/wildlife/pchicken/index.aspx

I don’t even know where to begin as what i do today goes back to my observations of my youth. I have always spent most of my free time in the outdoors, always in awe of nature and her mysteries. It is so exciting for me to be able to capture some of those exciting moments and share them with the rest of the world.I am always striving to be better at what i do and consider myself a student of the outdoors.
