Just got back for 4 days of fly-fishing and photography in eastern Washington. A pretty good trip overall, with plenty of fish and for once a few cooperative birds.
These first two quail were soaked from a heavy down pour just a few minutes prior to taking this shot. All shot out of the window of my truck.

Wonderful set, Louie. Great IQ and BG on these. I am always amazed how you are able to get shots with great looking, natural perches. Very well done!

Nice set, Louie. They look pitiful in that first shot. The crest on the male is hilareous. Number 3 takes it overall and number 4 for detail. Looks like you enjoyed yourself out there.

Hi Bill and many thanks. I appreciate your comments about the backgrounds being natural, I really do try my best at getting that type of shot.

Fly-Fishing, now that is something I haven't done in years, good for you. Great images, love the little extra natural surrounds with this series, very nice images. I was surprised at how well the D7100 stood up to the D800 files.
