Almost Full

Beyond half full
Positive vibes
Bringing on the night

We live on a hill, so gravity reminds us constantly who is in charge.
Two nights ago, while planning the garden, a covey of quail waltzed through our conversation. Half a dozen females scurried to the fence and hopped onto the entangled foliage. Several males/females followed suit. Finally, the dominate male and his mate brought up the rear and joined them.
We were within ten feet of them and they took no notice of us. I held my breath the entire time…or maybe just kept still and quiet. The experience was prodding enough to take out the Z6 and make some work last night. Perhaps they will return and I can make some portraits.

  1. How nice! Quails & Spotted Towhees are my favorite birds. Both very adorable. Great that you get to observe them in your yard, up close! The blue tones in the second photo are very nice. Good to see you’re getting inspired in your new place!
