Beautiful colors on a beautiful bird, and beautifully captured, Tim!

I'm usually a sucker for golden light, but in this case, I think the cooler lighting in the first two allow lends more impact to the nuances of the bird's colors. And, I love the pose in the first one.

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
...Show more

Hi Karl!

1 Yup saw this guy after all the gear was packed up and we were heading to the hotel, I saw the setup and had to stop to see if I could pull it off
2 The feathers are why I chose this shot. As for the rock, we got a million of them That area of the state is both quite dry most of the year but with some rain in winter, that gives the lichens and such something to live on.
3 nothing beats when they are straining to sing! Ah the feeling of seeing this guy, turning around to see if the sun is coming up and waiting. What a way to start the day!!!

Thanks for all the thoughts Karl, oh and the email

Terrific set Tim. LOve them them all, especially 1&3.
I'm jealous, I've yet to capture one of these on camera.. Well done


Indeed, getting these guys out in the open isn't easy. Last time I was in the same place they were all in the sage brush. Thanks Mr C

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.


Sometimes you find one that just doesn't mind Thanks Ken

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 .
Charlie


Quail turds You kill me Charlie, thanks!!!
