I spent a big chunk of yesterday evening editing images from photographing in the rain and the fog earlier in the day. It was really nasty and the lighting was poor and I had the best time with slow shutter speeds and all. I was immediately able to pick out what I felt was the best quail image and post it yesterday. What I didn't realize was that there were some hidden gems that needed to be dug out from the rest of the files. There are some flat out beautiful images of Mountain Quail hidden away in there. After a bit of digging I pulled some of my favorites to share. There are in addition to the Mountain Quail, one persistent Western Gray Squirrel,one gorgeous Steller's Jay, some Dark Eyed Juncos and a Varied Thrush. May God bless you and your families today. chris Equipment Used- Canon 7D, Canon EF 100-400mm f/4.5-5.6L IS USM Lens, Ground pod on window sill with a Manfrotto 3055 Ballhead.
