Black Grouse

 

Every dawn during spring, the male black grouse gather at the lekking arena. The males with their burning-red eyebrows and their purple-glozzy plumage fight and put on their very best displays. The females come to watch and decide who will be the winner. The pictures in the story were taken in the deep forests of Småland during four different spring seasons.
