I've got quail a few times recently, but never when I plan on it. They always seem to appear when I'm sitting quietly shooting other birds. It's kind of just a matter of plain ol' luck.

You sure caught this black-necked stilt in a nice pose. It certainly is an appealing shot.

Thank you very much, Mike!

Fabulous shot, Tom. I've gotta wonder if these cactus wrens ever get nailed by the cactus? It would sure seem like they would every once in awhile.

Truly fantastic violet-green swallow shot, Shalu. This shot, like others of yours, shows off their their incredible colors so well.
