This is my first Pheasant capture! A couple of friends and I were shooting with a Meet-up group in Solano County and were on the way back  from lunch when one of my companions noticed him. I was shooting from a car window, and didn’t think anything would be very good, but was thrilled to see this shot would be a keeper. I love his coloring, wing patterns, and long tail. Even though he’s sort of camouflaged in the grass I’m thrilled  that I was able to capture a  photo of him in his natural habitat.  He darted behind a knoll just after this shot. I didn’t see him again.

  1. How exciting! Ahh, if it were a true capture, he would be on your dinner table 🙂
    Beautiful color on that bird. I’m glad you were able to “capture.” Thanks for sharing with us!

    • Thank you! LOL! Wayne…un vrai Gourmand! I’ve not eaten Pheasant since I was little and my dad got that one. “)
