AERIAL ATTACK, PART II
|[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note|
|COMMON PHEASANT (IN THE WORKSHOP THERE IS ANOTHER IMAGE WITH THIS TWO BIRDS)|
I'm sorry about the image quality but the two birds took me by surprise and I did not have the time to position myself better.
The common pheasant (Phasianus colchicus) is a bird in the pheasant family (Phasianidae). The genus name comes from Latin phasianus, "pheasant". The species name colchicus is Latin for "of Colchis" (modern day Georgia), a country on the Black Sea where pheasants became known to Europeans.
It is native to Asia and has been widely introduced elsewhere as a game bird. In parts of its range, namely in places where none of its relatives occur such as in Europe, where it is naturalised, it is simply known as the "pheasant". Ring-necked pheasant is both the name used for the species as a whole in North America and also the collective name for a number of subspecies and their intergrades that have white neck rings.

Another great action photo of these fighting pheasants. Excellent timing.
Like this battle in the air shot of Common Pheasants. Perfect background with low POV. Good details and exposure.
I think you forgot to post WS picture which you have mentioned in your NOTE.
Thanks for sharing,
Regards and have a nice weekend,
