Pheasant flap, Pohangina

Just outside Pohangina Village yesterday, we saw a pheasant rooster strolling along the road. We followed him and I managed a series of photographs, most of which failed. Luck was with me for this one, though.

Wow! Fantastic photo of such a stunningly beautiful bird.

You've captured something of what is alarming about a bird scaring one off. Very effective.

I was going to start this message with "wow" but I see that others have got there before me! But the first word it inspires is just that! Well done, Pete.

Great photo Pete.

Thanks everyone :-) 'Wow' was my reaction to seeing him, too, particularly when he was displaying like this. I suspect he's the same bird I photographed in September.
