This Chukar covey was almost at a standstill in an olive grove; they are well camouflaged in this type of habitat.

Hello Umar,
Although the distance to the Chukar is large, this photo gives a fine impression of the habitat of these birds. Ive seen them on Lesvos in a Olive Garden.

Ciao Umar. Good capture of birds into the shadows. Good palying of light, excellent details.


Ciao Umar.
Ottima cattura nonostante il mimetismo di questi due fagiani,eccellenti i colori de un’ottima composizione molto bene la nitidezza bravo.
Ciao Marco.

Hello Umar,

I agree, it is hard to discover the birds!
Well done on documenting the camouflage effect...
