Another angle of the cock pheasant I had a short session with recently. They really do move their wings quickly so even with a fast shutter you get a nice bit of blur. Taken off tripod and 95% of full frame.

Wow that is stunning! The curved bit of green above the left wing-tip is very distracting to me but what a shot.

I hadn't even noticed that bit of green until I read the comment, a spectacular image.

What a great shot, with the beautiful colours, excellent detail, and the movement in the wings, I love it.

No nits from me either Simon. Again I like the fact that he has one foot off the ground. I think he is definitely practising to be a ballerina. :) :thumbsup:

Another excellent shot of this bird, Simon; just the right amount of wing blur and a great pose.
