Observing these beautiful birds is special. When we see a group we stop the car and observe and if I have a camera I take pictures. However, recently we passed a pheasant sitting on an old wooden fence and he was huge and very beautiful. Unfortunately it was too late.... to take a photo that is.
Young pheasant who hasn't gone through his/her moult.
Same pheasant in a closer view.
|Pheasants usually go in groups as they are social birds. This was a small group.|
Oops, this guy saw me!
Still watching and not moving.
