2017—That’s Life On The Lek

The male Greater Prairie Chicken at the right of the first photograph is giving his best display in an effort to impress the female  who has visited the lek to scout out potential mates.  As she seems to lose interest and looks away from the male, (image 2) he moves closer (image 3).  Still unimpressed , she moves away in search of a more suitable mate.
