Yes, more cute critters in this post, the Mourning Dove was a surprise, I’ve not seen them in this area before. The quail tend to run away like a chicken with its head chopped off, zoom! Those landscape photos aren’t balanced right, too much blue but even pulling up the white level didn’t fix them. I tried! I have zero desire to go anywhere today, no plans. Supposedly, Las Vegas will hit 97F today but it’s only around 80 right now. Still too cold, LOL!!

I love quails! You’re right that they zoom! I have never been able to catch a photo of them
Nice shots as usual, John. Is that a California quail or a Gambels quail? They look similar…
California Quail, they make the cutest sounds.
More lovely pics. We’d settle for that temperature 🙂
Thanks Derrick! It’s supposed to hit 95 today, desert life!
Astonishing landscapes in your neck of the woods.
Thank you, Mike! I’ve been processing several photos this eve of the California Qual and those adorable squirrels that look like chipmunks. Keeps me outta trouble haha. 🤪
Is the quail’s head really that orange or did you do something to it?
Ya busted me. I did augment the colours a bit. 🤭🤫
A punker quail.
Punker, so funny! I’ve been changing the colors less lately…
That’s good (to my way of thinking). I like it close to natural if possible. Sometimes you need to tweak the exposure a little but there’s a point where the photo stops looking real. It depends on the look you’re going for.
Right, too much is too much. I really appreciate your thoughts on my photos, Anneli. Your photos are very good. 😊
I think each person has strengths with their photos. Sometimes it’s good content/composition, sometimes it’s colour/lighting, and sometimes it’s the clarity, and then there’s opportunity. So many photos have worthwhile attributes. I’m pleased that you’ve found something worthwhile in mine.
I sure have, nice photography. There are many facets to the photo hobby. Input from others who enjoy the hobby is good! 😎
Yes, it’s always good to have positive input.
isn’t she so lovely… Thank you, Love, nia
