What a fantastic colorful shot!!!
I love it - especially in this grey, sad day!
thank you for that!
Chasing a female and eating at the same time, who said men can't multi-task?? :-) Nice detail and excellent colours, the patterns on these birds are so intricate, quite amazing really. Exposure is good too. It's a little grainy though.

Nice saturated colors, focus looks sharp and exposure is good. Soft light kept nice details in shadows as well as in highlights. Shallow DOF keeps attention on the bird. TFS.

I have a very busy couple of days. But I can make just enough time for a quick visit to TN.
Great capture, thanks for posting. Have a great week.

Superb shot! The sharpness of the pheasant against the softened background gives the image great depth, almost a 3D feel. Colours are excellent. That little bit of light reflected in the eye is an added bonus. I often pass pheasants on the roadyway to/from work but I never get to see them this close.
Congtrats on the 1000th point!
A lot of colour makes for an interesting shot here. The BG is sufficiently distanced from the subject and also the POV and Composition are excellent and all combine to make a grat shot. TFS,
