As I started driving down No. 1 Line late this afternoon after a walk up the track, this pheasant trotted along the road in front of the car before slipping through the fence into a steep, rough paddock. I stopped a little further along where I could see back to where the pheasant was standing. Although not optimistic, I hurriedly changed lenses and managed a few photographs from a long way off. This isn't technically a great photograph, but it gives the impression of this spectacular bird in its environment.
I never fail to get a thrill from seeing a wild pheasant.
