Quail Chicks


Took this shot of quail chicks, probably three weeks old, through a window looking out on a patio. Dogs in house. In the beginning there might be a dozen chicks, but the numbers are reduced quickly by predators (hawks, cats, etc.). Both parents, out of camera shot, are watching their young negotiate life.

My labels: grandfather, father, veteran, writer, poet, photographer and dreamer in pursuit of the meaning of life. Getting close, although I'm running out of time--probably why I'm so close.
