Photo Of The Day By Gene Putney

Today’s Photo of the Day is “White On White” by Gene Putney. Location: Colorado.

“On a November day, I went to search for white-tailed ptarmigan and hopefully have some photo opportunities,” explains Putney. “I was lucky to have found this cooperative one that paused briefly for me to capture its portrait. During the summer, their feathers are brown, and in the winter they turn white, blending into the snowy environment for natural camouflage.”
