Pleasant Pheasant, or at least I thought he was.

I was driving between lesson's when I saw him strolling through the field, he looked splendid in the sunshine, and I had time to stop the car, grab the camera from the boot and snap a few frames before he strolled off through the hedge.

I particually liked the effect that the dandelions in the field gave, making him stand out from the background.

Many thanks for looking.

Phil

He has magnificent plumage anyway, but the field of dandelions is so perfect for showing how handsome he is. A real gem, Phil.
