Greater Prairie Chicken Fight

Switzer Ranch, Burwell, Nebraska

Greater prairie-chicken males fight on a lek in the Nebraska Sandhills. While photographing from a camouflaged blind, I marveled at their aerobatic displays that often lifted them out of the frame during fights. The fights are a battle for the right to mate and there were as many females as males on the lek on this particular April morning. Calamus Outfitters  offers a variety of prairie chicken and sharptail grouse photography and viewing trips - they even host an annual prairie chicken festival. The Greater prairie-chicken depends on large expanses of undeveloped grassland and these grouse species are classified as vulnerable. Photo © copyright by Dave Showalter.

The Duraplaq Standard substrate is a 3/8" HDF board that is 100% recycled, environmentally friendly and is pre-laminated on both sides and finished with a "box" frame. The finished picture has a clean look and the matte laminate greatly reduces glare, allowing you to see the image. Duraplaq mounted prints can be cleaned with your normal glass cleaning products and are extremely durable.
