Here is another shot of Mr. Quail. I love being able to get closeups with my long lens.

Nice shot, Melinda. I think you’ve got the long lens technique down! And I love the background.

SMASHING Melinda ! I love quail too, and this would be lovely to me, no matter what. But your technique is GREAT! I have never seen a Gambel’s Quail in nature. By the way, your photo of this lovely creature shows how alive he is, how alert and energized, and how wary, with his bright black eye wide and one tentative foot forward. It’s as if a stray noise or any movement would flush him up and away into the sky.
Thank you for sharing this gorgeous bird with us. ………………..MaryAnn
