White feathered pheasant – still with us

While he disappears on occasion, sometimes for days at a time, our white feathered pheasant is still in residence.  I assume his trips are to help spread the white feathered genes, but I wouldn’t want to make assumptions.  It’s nice that he still comes to visit, and it gave me a chance to get a better picture of him.  He certainly is less scared of me than he used to be, and is clearly not at all bothered by the sheep:

Better pheasant pictures (though still not great)

Our white feathered pheasant friend was out this morning, and seemed to be hanging out nice and close, so I decided to take a few photos of him.  As soon as I got the camera out he started to run, clearly he’s had run-ins with the paparazzi before.  Still with some careful stalking, I managed to get a couple of okish photos of him.  One day I’ll get a proper shot!
