    Congratulations to Richard Hall this week's winner with his portrait of a Stubble Quail. Well done Rich.



    A stunning portrait of this species, showing so much detail in the feathers.
    Superb detail... on a bird we don't often see in a portrait image!
    Great shot, wouldn't be too many full frame portraits of this species obtained.
    Stunning portrait!

      Thanks very much to those that voted for my photo, it's an honour to even be nominated when we have so many great photographers and photos on the site.

      Ah yes, the 'Quail dance' Would have looked great on video!

      Amazing portrait of a tiny very shy little bird. Congratulations.
