Nice capture of a young cock Pheasant that is just gaining his adult plumage. Excellent composition against the green BG and a nice POV.
They are not easy to photograph if they see you, but you got him in good time.
TFS and enjoy the rest of your weekend,

Very good low pov to capture this colourful Pheasant!
good DOF with clarity, vivid colour and details
well done and thanks for sharing
have you been watching The Nature Of Britain on BBC1? They had a interesting bit on there about Pheasants and their secret life in the UK's hedgerows! Apparently they';re from south west Asia orginally. They do move fast (although not fast enough sometimes judging by the road kill everywhere), so you've done very well to get thisl
Lovely markings a good low POV, well done.
You have done very well to capture this fella...I was after a picture of one myself today and drove miles but every time I got close I failed miserably!!...Its a lovely setting you have captured him in and he stands out well amongst the fine green scene you have captured....And come on England!!

I agree, they are great birds!
I had them visiting in my garden a place I lived a few years ago, one male in front and 6-8 females in a row behind...
This one is so quick you should concider 1/1000 to freeze the motion next time, hehehe!

I am very pleased with your decision. It is great honor for me. Many thanks. I am glad that we met here.
Very nice scene and wonderful bird image. I like precise timing and captured moment. Composition is very impressive and exact. Despite the long exposure time the level of sharpness is very good but not extreme. MY best wishes to you and Happy Holiday time.
