Right place, right time and of course the right glance. Somethings the greatest chances are right there when you just glance. Wildlife is so blended in their surroundings it is hard to actually see them until you see them.
I was able to take a couple of pics, go back to my car, get my tripod and slowly inch my way closer. What a beautiful quail. I stayed there for about 15 minutes taking photos and videos segments. What a great opportunity.
