Don't you just love that perfectly placed plume on top of her head?

The bird's detail... feathers, eyes, top notch...are all very clear.

great photo.

We have a family of quail living in our front yard. There are only 3 babies, like little fuzzy ping pong balls scurrying around.

What a great shot!

I love quail. This is a nice close up. We have a pair that frequents our yard but they won't hold still long enough to get a picture.

And the twinkle in her eye!

They are so skittish, I can't get a picture like this of the ones around my house. Perfect!

Quite classy! I've never seen one in real life.

I love these birds. Their herky jerky walk/run and the little voices that always seem at work. Great shot, Sharon.

The quail was my mother's favorite bird. I gave her several pieces of quail pottery and now they are mine. I always think of her when I see them.
