A ruff afternoon
25

A few ruffs from a couple of weeks ago. Stopped by at the shore on my way back from work and saw a trio of ruffs that were fueling up for their migration south. Not very timid at least these three, they did not mind me lying on the shore for a while snapping away.

Ruffs look a bit plain this time of the year compared to their breeding plumage in the spring.

I tend to prefer the Finnish name for the bird, which would roughly (or ruffly) translate to English as "swamp rooster".
