Quail in snow part 2

It was snowing pretty heavily and the covey of quail came under the pergola for some shelter. I took these from inside the house as they walked up to the slider. I love the pattern of feathers on their bellies. At one point they were too close as I was using my 200-500 lens. My fence behind them plus the snow made it difficult for me to get a clean picture. So much white! I simply havenโ€™t figured out the settings yet. Since snow will be here for awhile Iโ€™m hoping the pictures improve over time. Practice,practice, practice. ๐Ÿ™‚
