Ruffed Grouse Entertainment

It’s been a wet couple of days on the Reality Road. The other night we waited until the rain had stopped until we set out to go shoot some birds for dinner. We didn’t get far after we turned out of the driveway when we were able to catch quite the show between a couple of ruffed grouse. I could have watched them all night.

We ate scrumptious partridge burritos earlier this week, but these guys were too fun to take part in any dinner plans. Very entertaining…and we welcome any entertainment up here in the boonies.

It turned out to be a night of shooting with the camera, and I didn’t mind. When we turned to head for home, we were blessed to see this gorgeous full rainbow. Right place at the right time. 🙂 Happy Friday, friends!
