I spotted several of these colourful birds during my stay on Texel. This one didn't seem to mind my talking photos at close quarters for good half an hour.

Yeah Kasia, there are a lot of pheasants in the dunes. You placed it very originally and effective in the frame.

beautiful shot Kasia of this ring necked pheasant. In one way I like this closeup photo as it gives me the chance to admire the fine plumage, but on the other hand the photo doesn't expose the full elegance of the bird, tail feathers included.By its behaviour i would hazard the guess that these birds are not hunted in this part of Europe. You must have been lying on the grass to get below the curious fellow. Pozdrawiam. Klaudio.

I really like this little guy, or is it a gal? Great colours and simple framing by the long grass in the foreground, with no clouds to distract the eye from this obviously photogenic pheasant.
Thanks for sharing.

I jeszcze to. Piekne ptaszysko, bażant rzecz jasna. Sliczna prezentacja jego iupierzenia, chociaz Klaudio ma rację, ogon tez byloby miło zobaczyc. Ze dwa czy trzy razy bażant zawitał w moim ogródku, ale to było dawno temu, kiedy nie miałam aparatu pod reka.
Pozdrawiam z Kaszub

So you took photos of this beauty for half an hour! I am not surprised by the time you spent (you have told me about your habits and patience before), but I am amazed that it wasn't at all bothered by your presence. After all, you must have been reasonably close. There is a wonderful sharpness, the colours are superb and it is perfectly placed against the blue background.

superb wild life shot this. It captures the beauty and character of these crazy birds so perfectly. Love the low profile and detail and also the impression that it is about to go scurrying off and hastily exit the right side of the frame. Stunning shot!
Enjoy your Sunday - B.

Beautiful shot of this pheasant, the clarity and sharpness of the feathers is amazing and the colors gorgeous. The low POV lets him appear really natural in its habitat.
It is curious though that he let you take pictures for such a long time, normally these birds are rather skittish.
But then, as a professional chef, I only know these birds from plucking them ...
have a great sunday

Bażanty są pięknymi ptakami, i czasami dają się sfotografować, inne ptaki są bardziej płochliwe, bardzo sympatyczne zdjęcie z niskiego punktu widzenia

What a pleasant pheasant!
An excellent close-up of a most beautiful and certainly impressive profile with gorgeous colours, magnificent feathers and pin sharp detail throughout.
Great lens work, Congrats. tfs

Very nicely shoot the spotted bird and kept it at the left side of the frame maintaing the rule of third. Good composition and well color management, very well sharped image.
warm regards and enjoy your holiday,
