|COMMON PHEASANT (IN THE WORKSHOP THERE IS ANOTHER IMAGE WITH THIS TWO BIRDS IN FIGHT)|
The common pheasant (Phasianus colchicus) is a bird in the pheasant family (Phasianidae). The genus name comes from Latin phasianus, "pheasant". The species name colchicus is Latin for "of Colchis" (modern day Georgia), a country on the Black Sea where pheasants became known to Europeans.
It is native to Asia and has been widely introduced elsewhere as a game bird. In parts of its range, namely in places where none of its relatives occur such as in Europe, where it is naturalised, it is simply known as the "pheasant". Ring-necked pheasant is both the name used for the species as a whole in North America and also the collective name for a number of subspecies and their intergrades that have white neck rings.

A beautiful catch, there the C mode can bring more to select later and this is quite crisp and sharp.
Well shot, TFS.

Great action photo in a perfect timing. Excellent sharpness and details in the wings. Beautiful colors and a good DOF.
Excellent usage of very fast shutter, the fighting cocks are tack sharp. Both photos are very spectacular, probably I feel the composition of the workshop a touch more powerful, but this is just personal feeling. Perfect action shots with exceptional exposure, congratulations!
Kind regards from Ireland, László
Another beautiful shot, Marius. Well captured.
Thanks and regards,
