The winding road is climbing up along a ravine, where you can almost touch the tops of pines and spruces ... just find a suitable place to park, sit down and wait ... a whole afternoon ;)

Equipment used
Canon 20D; Canon EF 400mm f/5.6 + TC 1.4x
Splendid image, just gorgeous ... I could wait a day for that (if i had the time) :t::t::t:
Well done! Never managed to get any shots of these at all on my recent trip to Scotland. They were relly elusive, and I didn't have the light when I did see them.
Dream shot! An afternoon well spent :)
I have not had any opportunities to portray this species yet, they don't live where I live...
You have a lot of patience, my friend. Bet you enjoy meditating. This is a real stunner.
Now I know what the 400F5.6 can do. Ha!
