A dusky (aka blue) grouse on my last hike in Glacier Park, in the Two-Medicine Valley, a drop-dead gorgeous valley rimmed by impossibly spectacular mountains. A few of these were near the trail, and I couldn’t resist. I just really like game birds. They seem very curious about people, and just can’t be bothered with flying sometimes. Been working lately a bit harder on my wildlife technique, in hopes I don’t embarrass myself too badly during my upcoming Africa trip.
