* Quail *<p>

Uploaded: September 11, 2011


I eventually managed to snap an acceptable image of this shy quail! We found it in the 'Walk-in Aviary' in Canberra, Australian Capital Territory (ACT)... Captured mid-afternoon, in late winter, on the 10th of August 2011...

What amazing detail you captured Carolyn. I just love the way Mother Nature dressed this little guy up. His feathers provide an amazing design. #9708022
