Such colours!!!
As lovely as a PEACOCK!!!
This is, indeed, a HIGHLY IMPRESSIVE representation of this pheasant.
Cropping and presenting just the head ... ???
Best and most kind regards,

Hello Dariusz,
I love this shot!!! The bird is simply gorgeous and you managed to obtain outstanding detail.
When I was a young boy we had many pheasants like this living in the fields near our home. In the late 70's the use of the pesticide DDT as well as some really bad Winters eliminated this beautiful bird from our area. How I wish we still had pheasants like this living in the wild. Thank you for bringing back such good memories!!

Beautiful pheasant. Looks like colors are coming out.
