|He's back! For a second year running!|
|Only this time, Mr Pheasant's got company on my back lawn...|
|Who's that girl?|
|Don't be shy! It's Mrs Pheasant!|
|They spent a few hours feeding on what other legit garden birds had dropped from the feeders|
|Explored every corner of the property at their leisure...|
|Is this my best profile?|
|Or this? Did you get my crest thingummy and earflaps?|
|Enjoying their cheap away day from the fields...|
|Have I missed a bit of that seed?|
|Time to whirr off back home. Till next time.|
Photos star a brace of Yorkshire-dwelling Pheasants (Phasianus colchicus) in the middle of May, in a suburban back garden close to rural woods, fields and farmland.
Photos taken on an old Nikon Coolpix 3700 3.2 Mega pixels 3x optical zoom camera, hand held through a Barr & Stroud Sahara 15-45x spotting scope by the author. Yes, I know there's a lot of focus issues and "vignetting" in these shots. Still really hope you enjoy meeting these characters that brightened up my afternoon!
