Hi Heidi,
Beautiful bird portrait. Interesting photo.

A different species. Yes it like a mouse. :))

Hello Heidi,
What a bird! Very funny! I suppose it is a part of seduction parade. This is an excellent shot, with fine details. Best regards,

great capture, although it is a male, it looks like an old lady :) TFS Ori

Hello Heidi
Wonderful portrait, taken with great details and natural colors. Well done

Hi Heidi

A fantastic shot of this Ruff, I have only ever seen them in non-breeding plumage. Simply amazing plumage.
Great composition and sharpness.


Wow, what a bird, Heidi!
I have seen it for the first time and I'm thrilled at the experience. It is so very different.
You have shot a very nice picture of it in a very charming pose.
Thanks and regards.

Hi again, Heidi.
You have some amazing pictures.
I can't believe this funny-looking bird.
Those black shapes on top of the head do look like Mickey Mouse ears.
Very interesting creature.
TFS. : )

Good mornin Heidi,
After looking at your ruff photo from Norway I uploaded a roff from Turkey. http://www.treknature.com/gallery/photo226382.htm
You will see how different they are in different seasons.
