Friends,this pheasant was not afraid of the rain and came out to visit with me, he ran parallel to my car for awhile and i shot his portrait, then he disappeared into the marsh. I love the red webbing around his eye, I have never observed that up close before, so it is a first for me, had to share with you, til Tomorrow MJ

Red, white and blue. They are such a beautiful bird. jack

His coloring is indeed amazing. Isn’t it wonderful when birds come that close?
yes indeed, but you have to be there, i like the old saying, “f/8 and be there”, thanks for your nice comments. MJ
Talk about color! I would love to have a recording of your conversation with the bird as the two of you traveled down the road! Great shot! Very sharp!
my side of the conversation, no don’t look off into the bushes, please move your eye parallel to my camera and please smile, thanks for the comment claude, MJ
