Fall colours—in all forms— are a sight to behold
The fall colours in Canada are wonderful to see, and this grouse proved it can also be part of this season of change.
I saw this fellow or lady wandering about south of Fort Mcpherson in the Northwest Territories a few years ago and was amazed how well it blended in with its surroundings. The trees and shrubs were also turning various shades of yellow and orange at the same time, and the added brown and black just contributed to the colourful scene.
This bird just strutted about without a care in the world, giving me a chance to capture its beauty up close. I thought Our Canada readers might enjoy seeing fall colours in another form, in addition to the wonderful fall foliage.
Driving along the Mackenzie River in late September and early October, you can appreciate the everchanging landscape. I worked in Fort Mcpherson during the time I snapped this photo, and had the opportunity to see the surrounding bush change from green, to light green to yellow and orange before my very eyes. I’m happy to have photographic proof as well as my memories.
