This pheasant ignores the food left by the local keeper and thinks our bird table is the local delicatessen.

NIKON D60 1/2000 second F/8.0 ISO 400 300 mm (35mm equiv.)

I'm very much an amateur photographer. I live in the hills of the Scottish Borders which has fantastic flora and fauna, as well as wonderful light.

what a gorgeous capture of this pheasant! I love them although they are a bit dumb! We actually had one wandering around in our garden over here a few years back - which is apparently pretty rare. I think it was a few continent's worth!

We used to have one years ago on our farm and every morning for a spell, crowed at
sunrise. No alarm needed. Beautiful photo.
