Bobwhite Couple

Found this covey of Quail today while out looking for Deer in Rome Georgia. They are the first Bobwhite Quail I've seen in a long time and the most cooperative I've ever seen. I think they were enjoying the warm morning sun and didn't wanna move away from this spot.

Nikon D300 ,Sigma 100-300mm f/4 APO EX DG HSM
1/640s f/6.3 at 420.0mm iso800 full exif

Very nice photo of difficult to photograph birds!

I thought your earlier picture was excellent but having the couple together is just "over the top". Excellent work.

Great picture...almost identical to one I have from decades ago at Chincoteague, VA. They just posed against an embankment in the sunlight. Fantastic what the newer cameras do with ISO, i.e. 800. We used to have quail in our back yard in Peachtree City in the eighties...along with the deer, etc.
