White-tailed Ptarmigan

Even though there were few feet of snow underneath me, the warm weather followed by cold had put a hard crust on top. Which  makes it harder for the ptarmigans to find a place to hide during  the cold nights and days. But on the day I took this picture, they did not have to worry about the cold but the strange creature lying on the snow with a big glass eye pointing toward them.  With me low to the snow, they felt less threaten and were more likely to wander toward me as they go about their business. giving me a chance to be part of their world for a short period of time.

Until next moment,
