Pheasant Under Grass

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.
