We made a pass through the strip pits late this afternoon...I cannot choose just one photo so what follows is a lot of photos of two Ring-necked pheasants we saw out there.
This one above I really, really had to work with in Picasa--and it still isn't the greatest.
The one above and the one below are very similar, but am still posting them both
Look at the one below...
it had just 'shaken it off.' If you look you can see that its feathers are ruffled...
The one above is a different bird and this is cropped from a photo that was taken at quite a distance.
And here it is again...original photo followed by a cropped version.
and below is my last pheasant photo....for now..
I am linking this to Tuesday's Treasures cause I sure consider them a treasure. These are the only two we seen today...they are few and far between out there now. Two or three years ago, we would have seen 8 or 10 on a spring afternoon.
Also going to link to the Bird D'Pot at I'd Rather B' Birdin'.
More random thankfulness....
