THIS WAS TAKEN A FEW YEARS AGO, WHEN I HAD MORE ADVENTURE IN MY BLOOD, THESE GUY'S DON'T COME DOWN THIS FAR SOUTH IN THIS MONTREAL AREA, THE MOST SOUTH IS IN THE LAC ST. JEAN AREA ( NORTH-EAST 875 KM. FROM MONTREAL ) AND THAT IS FROM TIME TOO TIME, IN NORMAL WINTER'S THEY STAY FARTHER NORTH.

An excellent image, Peter, of a species that not too many photographers have managed to take. The head-up pose, is a nice extra, plus the stark background, certainly gives a winter mood, to your photograph.

Super shot and framing Peter. Very nice! Lovely details including the movement of the snow falling off the branches.
Make your life spectacular!

What a beautiful image, Peter!  A must click for the fine detail.  Fantastic composition and content - classic ptarmigan pose, browsing through the winter foliage - and superb handling of the white plumage and snowy setting.  The lovely depth you achieved throughout the frame just adds the finishing touch for me.  I love it!

I was just reading about these birds that usually live in the far north. How wonderful to get this beautiful shot-the whites are wonderful.

Beautiful pose and composition. Nice lighting for a tough subject to keep detail in the whites. Very well done, and congrats for having the sense of "adventure" to go see him and get nice images.

Beautiful bird, excellent image. I don't remember have ever seen one posted here in full white plumage.
