And, it is still raining.

  1. Arrrggghhhh,
    I always wonder how someone can have a thrill at killing beautiful birds like this one...
    Gorgeous shot, Bob and lets hope their numbers where you are remain high!
    Keep well :)

  2. They are too easy to shoot so I can't see the attraction. They are daft but beautiful birds.

  20. Living in a rural area, we see lots of pheasants too. Beautiful colourful birds. And the tiny-minded people who shoot them are nothing short of bastards. And that's an insults to bastards. You get my drift. Sorry for the language, Bob

  28. The pheasants have such colorful and vibrant feathers.
    If the hunt is for survival and within limit, then I am ok with it, but if the hunt is for pure fun or sport, then it is a horrible thing.
