Thank you Shalu. We certainly have more quail around than in past years.

I like this one, Shalu. Stretching shots are cool because they give the viewer a different perspective from the norm.

Thank you, Mike!

Still raining so I shot these two through the window, had to take a few raindrops out in lightroom plus work some of the noise out. Looks like I really need to get a tripod and gimbal head. Suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you,
Harry

There will be days when you get the shot(s) you missed days, months or years before.

Harry, great background in both. Considering shooting through a window, detail is good, poses are nice. I do not know how much you do in post production but IMO you need a little more midrange level to the darker side on the hummers.
