As pheasants go, this is a cracker Dean!! Such great feather plumage detail - the rain on the feathers is like jewels! Great background - so worth the effort! John SmileSmile

I think I prefer this to a shot of a male pheasant. Love the detail - in the bracken too - and great background.

An outstanding image Dean, the feather detail is fantastic and I like the colour of the dead ferns in the foreground.
