Thank you Jeff

Beautiful portrait of this lady, Debra. She's framed perfectly by the tamarack branches and you caught her in the perfect pose. Great tones and detail here too.

Thanks Heather, the tamarack are such a soft needle that they actually were falling asleep in the tree nestled nicely on a branch.

This curious female spruce grouse loved the sound of my camera as I was taking pictures. She would turn her head from side to side listening to the sounds and then went back to eating the tamarack needles. Female spruce grouse are intricately scaled with brown, buff, and white.
