St. George, Utah. Jan. 27, 2014. Taken in the backyard at my sister’s house; we were house sitting at the time. Their yard is on the third tee of the Entrada Golf Course. Another late afternoon shot. I had been sitting there for about an hour shooting sparrows when a covey of 5 quail came by. This one hopped up on the rock to look around. He was about 25 ft. away. Sony A77 with a Sony 70/400 zoom at 400. 1/100 F8 ISO 100. Shot from a tripod using a wireless remote shutter release.
