Coy quail

    Newer Older

    I thought I would break up the steady stream of elephant seal images and upload a shot from my first trip to Point Reyes National Seashore in 2011. This handsome fella was posing on a fencepost along Sir Francis Drake Blvd in the park. I didn't want to spook him off of his post by getting out of the car, so instead of I shot out of the open window and only got the overcast sky behind.

      Nicely done. Love the pattern of the feather on the lower belly of the bird. Send few up north so we can photograph them.
