Wild birds must love my back yard because we had another visitor this morning.
It’s a California quail and it was sitting up high for a while and as I got closer with my camera, it flew away.
This was the best photo I could get.
I never know what to expect when I walk out to the back yard.
It wasn’t long ago that a beautiful ring-necked pheasant hung around for almost two weeks. He was so regal looking, I had named him “Baron Von Jonesenheimer III.”
He was not afraid of people and everyone who came by was stunned to see him just walking around. We fed him for a few days in hopes he would stay but he finally flew away.
I had my “supposed to be annual but wasn’t” eye exam yesterday. I went to Lenscrafters and there were only two of us customers there but it still took almost two hours. But the good news is my eyes are healthy, but my reading glasses need a new prescription. No wonder I can’t read a dinner menu in a candle-lit restaurant!
The picture is a great one like always 😉
I think you did awesome with this one too. Even though your extreme closeups are my favorite photos I would say this one is extreme as it could’ve got. Heck, you did better than what I would’ve done…
I keep saying you have a beautiful yard and it shows from the beautiful animals it attracts, except for maybe the squirrels. Baron was just beautiful because of his colors. The quail is more beautifully cute. The quail looks like he has a hat on his head with a feather sticking out…lol…
See! you did get close enough 🙂
Does that mean now that you can see we have to be careful what we write on here? LOL Just checking. haha
On another note….I am still sad Baron has not shown back up again!
