Green Pheasant

I was driving along a local back road on my way to work when I saw this pheasant standing at the top of a bank next to a field. I didn’t expect to be able to get a shot, but I stopped the car and tried and, amazingly, managed to get quite close. He was very proud of himself it seemed!

    Thanks. His head/face is a bit dark (sun from the wrong side), but I’m pretty happy with the photo.
