Quail at sunset, Point Reyes National Seashore

California quail at sunset - Pat Ulrich Wildlife Photography

A male California quail is kissed by the golden light of sunset as he sits on the old gnarled branches of a coyote bush near Abbott's Lagoon in Point Reyes National Seashore.

  2. You must be up early in the morning or late evening to get light like this! I enjoy seeing all your wildlife photographs, they are so beautiful.

  3. Great photo Pat. Excellent composition, color and background.

  4. I like the warm, soft light and perch here Pat.

  5. This is fantastic to me as I live and breath for sunsets (and some few other things)
