Wow, thank you all so much!
Quoting katinkent:
What a great picture, couldn't have gotten a better shot if you staged it. I didn't now quail were in trees, I thought they were only on the ground. Beautiful AND instructional, ha, ha.

@Katinkent: This is really a small crooked three that he is sitting on at the bend. It is probably no more than 2-3 feet off the ground. The perfect look out perch for Mr. Quail guarding over Mrs. Quail who was feeding on the ground. They seem to love a little elevation. I have never seen them in tall trees either.

Quoting WeatherWise:
I think you did...GREAt shot! Those SX50 HS seem
to be a great camera! Two of my friends just bought
one and I am itching but my SX40 HS is still too
good to replace just yet. But I am yearning for
that 50! Nice photo~ Congratulations on AC!


I am sure the SX40 is every bit as good! I am still learning the little 50, and normally have trouble taking clear shots zoomed in without a tripod. I didn't have time to grab it on these shots, but took enough where some came out. :)

Thank you so much approvers!

They are hard to convince to stand still and smile, but nice when they do.
