Caption: A Northern Bobwhite on a fence? I've often heard them but never seen them...they usually hide in the grass. Not sure what this one was doing out in the open.

Thanks! It was evening light but overcast so not a lot of light to work with. Fortunately, he was very cooperative.

What a cutie! Never saw a Bobwhite on a fence, but crazily enough, I did see a pair of them trying to cross a busy suburban street once near a traffic light as cars whizzed by.

About tamcat


My name is Kevin N. Weinhold, and somehow I ended up posting photos on an account with my wife's nickname (sorry for any confusion!). I used to think that photos were too two-dimensional, not really capturing the real person or scene, but now I understand why: without God we are all two-dimensional, but there is a much richer world behind those photos. I hope you find something in my photos beyond my view of God's creation; I'm looking forward to seeing your photos, too!
