I love the crazy antics of California quail in the summer. It’s funny how they try to hide in the undergrowth, and yet they constantly call attention to themselves. They seem so vulnerable; it’s surprising that they have survived as long as they have. I guess they are an important part of the food chain, so it all works out. Regardless, I think they are quite entertaining.

It’s always sad to see the brood of little chicks go from many down to one. A popular snack for the carnivore neighbors.
They are so entertaining!
I really like the depth of field you used for this photo – the quail in sharp focus, and everything else
softly out of focus.
