The icing on the cake - Ptarmigan by Jamie-MacArthur The icing on the cake - Ptarmigan by Jamie-MacArthur
Spent quite a few hours going up the Cairn Gorms (a mountain range in Scotland) to get this. I was freezing but it was worth it. I only fell 5 times lol but it was a soft landing

I've heard about these before. Do they have a brown coat of feathers in summer?
