    Hello, I shot these frames up at Arctic Valley this Winter and I have a couple of questions. When is a good time to photograph them with their breeding colors and Are these birds always this gullible year around. I was able to get with in 5-feet of them. Oh ya, how do I insert the actual images into this post?


    Thanks for the look ........Eddie

    Great shots there tull! Posting shots on the web is a challenge in the beginning. The biggest challenge for most folks seems to be in the size of their image. So it needs to be downsized before it will be allowed to be posted. I have attached a link that Mike Strahan put on here that helped me get started on posting pictures. I have since got a software that I use in my photography that makes it alot easier. After you do it a couple times it becomes second nature. EricL

    Very nice pictures.

    Yes, ptarmigan stand still and let you get close. However, the spook a little when there is hunting pressure on them. Over by Eagle Mountain on the Steese Highway, I have seen them in late May and early June with a different set of colors, but still with some white spots left.

    Wowzer! I tried that at first and it did not work. I wonder why this time.

    Beautiful pictures, Tull. Really like looking at them.
    I have a tougher time finding them in the spring but they will still sit when you do.

    Thanks for the possitive feed back. I will have to get out this spring and track them down.
