Wildlife photography can be tough if your subject insists on making life difficult for you. Here’s a video that shows a recent encounter between a wildlife photographer in Belarus and a western capercaillie, the largest member of the grouse family.
The photographer was shooting at a wildlife sanctuary at Vyhanaščanskaje Lake when the capercaillie decided it had seen enough of the picture-taking. It began sitting on the photographer, biting at him, and whacking him with its wings, forcing the photographer to set his DSLR kit down and protect his face instead.
