As I drove, the sky was grey but at least it was not raining! I headed to the coast as I hoped to get some decent photos of Brown Quail. Within 5 minutes of leaving the car I spotted a family of 8 quail feeding on the side of the track! As I lifted my camera the sun burst through the clouds lighting them beautifully! The posed for a couple of photos before scurrying into the grass.
I'm happy with the camera by the way! Canon7D is an older model these days but still excellent for bird photography with 8 frames per second!!
