These were all shot with a Canon 5Diii and a Sigma 150-600mm C lens on a tripod with gimbal head. My wife's setup is identical. We were sitting in a pit blind, so our lenses were only about a foot above ground level. Most of the action was from about 15 feet to about 30 feet from us.

I'm not sure why I'm so crazy about quail. Maybe they remind me of my childhood. My dad was an avid quail hunter and that's the type of hunting that I cut my teeth on. We sure walked a lot of miles!
