Sadly I have not seen any capercaillies in the flesh so I had to work from photographs and drew my inspiration for the background from earlier experiences in the Caledonian Forest. It's not easy to see the dusting of snow in the web image which is a result of breeze blowing dry snow off the branches. When capercaillies are in mating mode they have a ritual courtship which takes place in a clearing called a lek. I have tried to suggest this lek in the image you see.
