[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
As a comprison to the Hen bird I posted previously, this is the Cock bird of the species in full breeding colours. A truly beautiful bird but stupid at times. There are lots killed on the roads each year as they try to fly across roads in front of vehicles. I took this picture in woodland glade as I carried my gear to the hide and I am quite pleased with the outcome.
Camera Settings :- ISO 400, AV, Spot metering, 1.4x converter, 560mm focal length, Remote shutter cord.

great portrait, almost like a painting, I did not like the frame though, greetings, Ori

Beautiful details and colors on this gorgeous looking pheasant. I'm guessing it was slightly overcast. Very nice Peter. :)

Wow, fab colours in this lovely Pheasant Peter. Every detail is sharp and you have a very good POV and DOF. You do take great shots all round.
