    I don't know how many have had a chance to see bobs in the wild or if anyone cares to but here are a few of my photos. First one of the pairs was taken in a cattle pasture we often visit for wildlife photography (it is also a wildlife management area). The other 4 are from a rogue male that hung around my yard & "bob white'd" a ton for a few weeks last year. He is what started my love for bobs.

    Bobs are really hard to photograph! Especially the wild guys!!

    Nice pictures. I didnt realize there were still bobwhites in the wild in Florida. Thought the fireants took care of them all.

    My Mom used to live in Englewood, Fla. and wild Bobs would feed at her bird feeder daily.

    Wow! Those photos are great! They are so pretty! I thought about starting on bobwhites but I dont think I want to. But seeing these pictures might have just changed my mind. [​IMG]
