Got pretty close on these two doves. The sun was going down so got some pretty warm colors.





Here are a couple chuckar shots. They are game birds and get hunted pretty hard so they do not hang around. These shots are from about 40 yards.

That is one excellent looking bird, with an attitude, that I love!

I'm referring, especially, to the first photo

Oh yeah, you got beautiful colors on those birds, zoomn! The light was really favorable.

Nice shots.

Thanks for taking a look and posting.

I have taken lots of dove shots and usually they don't do much for me. However these with the sun setting I really liked the colors and I was able to get about 20' away. Glad you like the colors on the birds.

One of these days I will get one of the chuckars at less than 40 yards. I sure hope so cause they are one of my favorite birds.

So does the board always get slow like this in August cause there is a lack of birds, or because everybody is on vacation (lucky dogs).

Normcar hope you are having a good time. I am sure when you get back you will have some great stuff to share with us.
