[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Hello friends, we have the impression
that this bird is flying from the top
of the trees but it is flying from
the ground after being pointed by a
pointing dog and then flushed.
I was at a pointing dog activity.

1/4000s, f/8.0, ISO1000,
85mm (35mm eq:127mm).

- Chukar Partridge
- Perdrix choukar
- Alectoris chukar

from Seattle Audubon Society website

« A chunky, medium-sized bird introduced
into North America from Eurasia, the Chukar
is a pale-colored, but boldly patterned bird.
The bird's red bill and legs contrast with
its pale gray upperparts. A black line surrounds
the bird's whitish throat and cheek, and extends
over its eyes. The Chukar's sides are cream with
bold black stripes. Pale orange under-tail coverts
and red outer feathers adorn its short gray tail. »

Hello Asbed,

Lovely capture of this partridge's uprising motion and under a crystal clear sky. Good perspective with the inclusion of the treeline and the pov shows well the versatility of this game bird's winged ways. Very nice.



Hello Asbed,
Excellent inflight catch with an interesting Pose and fine details.

Hi Asbed.
Very attractive moment you have pictured this time. It is difficult ot watch this in a wild. Curve of trees at a bottom of the frame and blue sky are nice supplements to the crisp sharp image of the bird. War, regards and TFS.

Bonjour Asbed,

Les arbres aident au cadrage de l'oiseau. La prise de vue permet de voir les détails et les couleurs de la Perdrix chakour en vol. La qualité de l'image embellit les couleurs de l'image. Bonne journée.
