Ptarmigan in Mottled Plumage

I led a group high into Coire an t-Sneachda on the flank of Cairngorm Mountain to search for ptarmigan after two days of heavy snow. It was late in the day when we found them, in the process of changing from winter to summer plumage. I like the blades of grass showing through the snow in this image.
