Très chanceux d'avoir pu photographier ces perdrix. Cet oiseau est très photogénique.

I am glad that you were able to get a shot of the gray partridge. I suppose you learned what a good blind a vehicle can be. Sometimes that is the only way one can get a shot of animals. You are correct, TN should not be a contest. The subject captured, the quality of the note, and your interest and enthusiasm are equally important. You have a lot of snow already on the ground. We may get a few inches this weekend.
Evelynn ; )
You have all this snow right now???? I would not be out taking pictures in that weather. I have to look up what -14 is. These Partrides don't seem to mind the cold or the snow. The one at the end of the clearing does seem to be hesitating about the rough stuff. Maybe you have a shot of them following this one. I like your notes - and I agree with you 100%.

Hi Asbed, a fantastic capture of these perdix on snow. wonderful details and sharpness. Nice composition.
TFS and cheers,
#1...VERY hard to shoot these in imagery in snow..I have several and they came out very poor with good gear too and I was close in...so you do not lack much in that area at all...
#2...We are in for it Asbed..Coming in tomorrow...watch for our areas weather on the national news..now remember what happens in Seattle is 2-3X worse here...maybe even more in the wilderness only 2 hours north of me..

You are correct. This not a photo contest entry :)
Seriously though, TN is a photo sharing site first & foremost. Hopefully one can learn about the natural world around us through regular participation.
I've always appreciated your enthusiasm mf.

This is a very good capture of these grey partridge.
I see many birds and things as I drive around too.
The last time I saw grey partridge was the day I bought my new lens from the camera shop and it was still in the box on the seat next to me.So I missed the shot.lol.
The plumage detail shows well enough.

splendida cattura di Starne, ottimi POV basso e composizione con BG della neve che esalta il frenetico dinamismo degli uccelli in fuga, buona definizione.

We have the same species in Europe and they are hard to photograph. Here you did a fine job capturing the Gray Partridge in the snow with excellent light management. A well taken opportunity from your car.
Well done Asbed and thanks for sharing this fine capture.

Lovely shot, nice composition with good detail. I am moaning because it is cold here today - it is around -1C - we never get temperatures like that - or as much snow. we do however, have lots of these partridges - I see them everyday :) for us the rare one is the red legged partridge which was introduced to the UK - like the Grey was to you!

Interesante documento de esas perdices en la nieve. Lástima del ruido electrónico que desvirtúa un poco la toma.
Saludfos: Josep Ignasi.

I totally agree with your comment that TN is not a place for a photo contest, it is quite rightly a place for learning about nature through photography. I think this lovely image fits the brief perfectly here. It is interesting to see this group of partridges and you were very lucky to get the shot. I don't drive so never get the chance to do things like this. Wonderful winter image
