Take off

This Pheasant landed in our small garden, after an inspection of our living room and kitchen she went back outside but the hedge and fence seemed to high for a good "take off". It took at least one our before she finally gave it a try and succeeded. Click the icon for more fantastic Camera Critters.

That is so cool. Maybe the pheaseant just stuck around so you would take pictures of her. :-)
The picture is so sharp and clear. Great shot.

It really does look like she has just one leg. Nice of her to drop in so you could get this neat photo. Dick, why didn't you help her over the fence???

Goed geschoten Dick. Jammer dat je niet wat anders had om mee te schieten. Ze zijn heus lekker.

Just perfect - subject, exposure - you name it!

Gerard, wat wreed.

How unusual! The way he's posed, he looks like he just has one leg, but when I look closely I can see the other...
