The capercaillie (Tetrao urogallus) is best photographed during its courtship in the spring. The high season starts in the last week of April, continuing about four weeks. Photographing takes place in a mobile tent hide with room for one person and equipment. We head out to the hide during the previous evening, and all preparations must be made before sunset. Photographing can be started at sunrise, as capercaillies begin their courtship.
