Nice find Stacy. Hard to find many of these guys anymore. Used to see quite a few sages south of Leadore, but not so many any more.

Yes, Mel it was taken the day before I posted it. They were giving me quite the show and I really enjoyed the opportunity to shoot it. I will probably head back out to take advantage of this while they are still going at it.

Wow, Stacy - what an awesome opportunity you had!
Sage Grouse are one of my vary favorite subjects, but finding opportunities to shoot them is never easy.

Did you shoot from a blind?
I'd really like to hear the details and backstory behind these images.

"Your" and "you're" are different words with completely different meanings - please use the correct one.
"They're", "their", and "there" are different words with completely different meanings - please use the correct one.
"Fare" and "fair" are different words with completely different meanings - please use the correct one. The proper expression is "moot point", NOT "mute point".

Tom, their was a dry creek ravine i was able to walk down to get close enough to shoot and get the captures. I was watching about 80+ bull Elk when I noticed these below me. I glassed from afar and chose to gamble and use my mono pod. Their was no wind so I was able to hold and get some great shots,The creek bed was perfect to stand in, and it left me just about 2 feet higher than the bank so it worked well and didn't seem to bother the birds at all. They turned out well or least I thought so. I was contacted from a magazine for this series and several more shots from earlier in the day. I truly love photographing these birds they can become almost memorizing.
