15th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Altered Images
Sooty Grouse

While taking a vacation with my husband to Vancouver, Canada, we went to Grouse Mountain. While exploring, I came across this grouse. It's as if this bird wanted to be photographed. The scenery was beautiful and the grouse was posed in a perfect position. I love photographing birds and I was thrilled to capture this amazing shot. What was even more amazing was I was able to see a grouse on Grouse Mountain!
