Ruff Stuff (40) More files... by Winfried Wisniewski
On the cold and windy tundra of northern Europe a collection of male ruffs return to their traditional display grounds to compete for the affections of females. On this grassy lek over a dozen colorfully-plumed birds dance, display, battle and, if they are lucky, dominate their opponents to gain the right to mate. Winfried Wisniewski brings us a selection of action-packed images of the competing ruffs in full courtship regalia.
