A running ptarmigan

March 6, 2020

A svalbard rock ptarmigan running towards me.
Luckily it showed me its foot. It looks like one of the rabbits.

They are basically anywhere in Longyearbyen.
This photo is taken very near the church.

Probably people don't know how difficult it is to see these little guys in the middle of winter...otherwise this would probably be a more popular image. Really cool capture, though! Great pose
