This beautiful Ruffed Grouse was hanging around the trees beside our house for a few days. Oddly it didn't seem at all nervous about people being around and even walked right up to me as I was taking pictures of it. I felt like it was trying to tell me something. It seemed rather sad and lonely although didn't appear hurt at all. I must go out and see it's still there today. This is why I live in the country. You never know what wonderful creatures your going to encounter on any given day.
Hope you're having a wonderful and peaceful Sunday like I am.
