Photo-Finish Friday --Grousing About

On our Sunday drive last week we saw a ruffed grouse.

He crossed the road in front of us so fast we barely had time to get photos and not time at all why he was doing it.

My first, entirely frivolous, thought: He doesn't need a reason; he isn't a chicken.

Good capture!

I kept hearing grouse in the bushes on our hike yesterday, but I don't see them. I think your grouse was out visiting the neighbors. :-)

J love those heart stopping moments, which are so much better when you have camera in hand and can actually review what you saw happen so rapidly.

Thanks, Mary Anne.

I bet you're right, DJan.

Tabor, it is good when there's a photo to remind one.

Hahaha…"he doesn't need a reason he; isn't a chicken"…LOL!

Just grousing around I guess. Friday frivolity!!!

And maybe the chicken is tired of having its motives questioned.

Anyway, nice shot of a grouse crossing the road, where i'm sure it had business to attend.
