Quail on a Tree

Yes and so noted..I have captured certain sub species of quail in trees. It is more than likely a last ditch effort to hide from you! Otherwise they spend most of their time on the ground....your azure blue skies are quite interesting. I still think there is something different in Arizona, New Mexican and Mexican skies...something which is very much different than upper longitudes...A good presentation...the picture with two titles! And two completely different presentations (&*only some may know:-))

Of your two presentations I certainly prefer this one!! It is such a beautiful bird and you've captured it nicely here, half-hidden by branches. I like the POV and it looks good against the blue sky.
Good to see you back!
TFS and cheers, Ulla

Yes, and so do I Jane!
I like the composition of this Gambel Quail shot, nicely showing, though partly hidden in the top of this tree. It seems that some species do end up in tree tops as an exception, perhaps to keep their territories, as this male seems to be doing.
Nice and sharp and in great lighting.
Have a good weekend,

Excelent capture of Quail in extraordinary position. Though covered mainly by leaves the most important part of the bird is suitably visible with good good composition, sharp details, all colours are natural.

Hello Jane. Your quail looks very different than our tiny specimen :-) The shot is excellent on top of this tree against the beautiful blue sky. Nice sharp detail on the head and you have metered your equipment very well here. I like the framing with the leaves in the foreground looking more in natural habitat. Well done and best regards.

quel étrange oiseau, sa coupe de cheveux est particulièrement moderne :)
Belle prise de vue, le pov est excellent, les branches se dégagent juste pour laisser apparaître sa tête.
