p.1 #1 · p.1 #1 · California Quail (3)


Hi all. I have been super busy lately with too little time for the forum I have been popping in now and again when I have had a minute or two. Hopefully things will be getting back to normal schedule wise. Anyway I have a ton of images to share so it was hard to decide on what to start with. Here are some Quail from a quick trip over the mountains this weekend. The first two are some of the last shots from Saturday night just as the sun was dropping into the storm clouds stalled over the Cascade mountains. The last is from the first 10 or so minute of sunlight as the sun rose over the horizon this morning. I got to this guy without any light on him but within a very short time he was bathed in clear sunrise light.

Now lets see here, 800mm, ISO 2000 and they look this good, darn sweet Tim and the nuances of colors here are intriguing.

#1 the hints of a dusty mauve from the rock are echoed gently in the BG, nice touch Nice pose and comp
#2 I like what the wind did to this image, those outcast feathers are eye catchers buddy! How do you find such nice rocks for perches
#3 nice light, funny to see that squinty eye when they call out, my Song Sparrows do the same For me I would love to see less of this perch and more above and for sure maybe to remove those two pellets

I am looking forward to all you have to share!
Karl

Such a camera friendly bird! Nice colors and patterns. Little bobbles handing off the head for extra interest. The perch in the first two is a lovely one. Great light in the last one. Really nice job on these Tim.

I love these Tim...the guy singing for love is too cool. Had some Gambels doing the same thing in Arizona but not with such pretty light.

Wow! Three real wieners, Tim .
The colors on #1 (bird AND BG) are amazing- and the trend continues.
I sort of like the pellets being there. I've often wondered what quail turds look like .
Now I know .

Super shots with super PP.

How can it get any better than this at ISO of 2000.

Wow, beautiful pose and color on #1 and #2 but I can't take my eyes of #3 with such a nice warm lighting in the morning and the call.
