Description

Ptarmigans maintain their prudent attentiveness as they forage in a snow field, surrounded by willows, as snow falls. Meanwhile, the photographer has approached extremely slowly, on his belly, ever-closer, trying to avoid flushing them. Focusing on the eye of the nearest bird required manual focus because there wasn't enough area of dark to allow the auto focus to render it sharp.
