"Q" was not easy for my nature topic. I decided I didn't want to do quail; besides I didn't have a picture of one in my photo library. Besides, the focus for me is to find things the represent nature that I've actually photographed. So the search began - I found it, I actually had pictures of them in my library. Yeah.
The scientific name for Grackle is begins with a "Q" - who knew!
