Another subject from the strip pits


I have seen pheasants out at the strip pits before, but this is the first one I have seen out there in several years. This is just two photos of the same bird...it was running away from me and this is the best I could do. I was still thrilled to capture it at all.

You had a great day with your new camera didn't you? I've never had a chance to take a picture of a pheasant.

Rose, like Neal, I've never captured a picture of a Pheasant before. Gorgeous pictures!!!
Hugs,

I think you did a fabulous job of capturing a rather close view of this beautiful bird! Nice shots.

You got some great shots! Pheasants are so neat to have around. Where I used to live I'd often hear the the males "crowing" from their cover.

Rose, you are really getting good at capturing birds with your camera. Great pictures.

O LOVE these...I can feel your frustration as you try to get a great shot. ;-) MAN oh man, I sure can feel the frustration! LOL

Lovely captures.

The shutter was open 5 sec. in the first and 8 sec. in the last.
I used tripod and remote realeaser.
