CommentFrom last July - a month I spent obsessed with Brown Quails. There were/are certainly oodles of them at this location. My goal was to get one in, crossing, or near this puddle in the late afternoon light. It was a fairly long (but narrow) puddle and sometimes it was pandemonium with several of the critters crossing together simultaneously at different spots, and often one lone bird would sneak across during the flurry; this was one such occasion. Out of scores of frames taken over several weeks I managed a couple of dozen pleasing images, some better than others, but all keepers. This one is somewhere in that category
