Quelle chance! J'en ai photographié un il y a quelques jours, mais on ne le voit que de dos et assez loin! Amitiés, Christian

Ein sehr schöner Vogel Anne, hast Du den in freier Wildbahn gesehen?

Bonito faisán Anne, co ese fondo verde hace que resalte mas su colorido.

Abrazos. José

Sehr hübsch! Bei uns spaziert immer einer durch den Garten. Immer, wenn ich die Kamera ansetze, ist er hinter irgendwelchen Pflanzen. Schönen Sonntag! Gruß Jörg

Thank you very much, Steven! The pheasant was there all of a sudden and I took a couple of photos, but only this one turned out ok. It was the first time I ever saw a pheasant in the wild. I'm glad you like this shot! Greetings, Anne

Merci beaucoup, Christian! C'était mon premier faisan et j'en ai pris quelques photos mais seulement celle-ci est assez bonne. Amitiés, Anne

Vielen Dank, Andreas und Jörg! Ja, den habe ich in freier Wildbahn angetroffen, und zwar am Stadtrand von Münster. Ich war selber überrascht, weil ich noch nie zuvor einen Fasan in Natura gesehen hatte (außer vielleicht im Zoo!) Jörg, ich drück dir die Daumen, dass dir euer Fasan doch noch vor die Linse kommt! Die Chancen stehen doch recht gut, wenn er euch öfter besucht!:) Viele Grüße, Anne

Thank you very much, oronbb! I'm glad you like this shot! Cheers, Anne

Oh Anne think my girl would really like this cute guy.

Seems you got really close too, and that with the first one you encountered in the wild. Great picture.

Greetings, Erik

Anne ! You fooled me a little when you said that you haven't seen any pheasants in the wild;)) This is an excellent photo of a handsome male ;))

LiKe !

Ha en trevlig kväll !

Thanks for your nice comments, Erik and Björn! I met this pheasant all of a sudden! He had been hidden in the grass and when he saw me he quickly moved away! For me it was the first and so far only pheasant I ever came across and I'm glad you like him! Best wishes, Anne
