Hi Billy, Fine job with this Bobwhite capture. You acheived great detail even with it backlit. Super POV/pose. Nicely composed though I would have left just a tad more space to the right of the bird maybe. Well done, TFS
Have a great weekend.

Another bird I have never seen. We have the Gambel's Quail here in Arizona. The plummage is similar. Very nice details of the face and plummage. Good natural colors and setting.
Neat lesson plan Bob...I knew of the name bobwhite but was unaware of it being of the quail family. Having not really seen one before, I did indeed think it was a grouse..Way cool..nice image for a fly-boy!:-)

a great chance you have to shoot in photo such a beautiful bird,
superb close-up, excellent light on the foreground of the image,
his plumage is very detailed and he is camoufled too
with his natural habitat, excellent POV, TFS

You must have taken your time to creep up on this Quail, or sat perfectly still as it approached you! Excellent lighting angle to highlight the feather's description, and that soft face is distinctly, Quail!
Have A Great Weekend...
