Camera Critters-Northern Bobwhite

Out at Branched Oak Lake this week I saw this pretty lady. Her gentleman friend was with her when I came upon them, but I had the lens cover on the lens and by the time I rectified that little problem he was gone. I don't believe I had ever noticed how stubby the tail of a bobwhite was before.

Excellent captures of the Northern Bobwhite Kayleen! Spotting one would be a lifer for me. Funny how common birds for some are lifers for others isn't it?

I hate when I do that "oops I forgot to take the lens cap" thing! You did get a couple great shots of this guy though:)

Kayleen: Neat capture of the quail, they are a hard bird to capture in the wild. They hide well and flush quickly.

Great shots. It does look kind of odd without much of a tail.
