As the Spring is becoming bolder, the wild animals are starting to change their habits after the long winter, in preparation for the beginning of the mating season when, if you have a little patience to sit quietly in one spot, you can see an amazing display of colours and rituals. The pheasant is one of these actors. While it is not very visible during the rest of the year, you know spring has arrived when you hear every couple of minutes the sound of their call and the hectic flutter of wings. While for some the pheasant is as common as a dove or roe deer, where I live they are mostly pretty shy due to hunting and they display their wonderful courting ritual when they are sure that nobody is watching them, hence a tad more difficult to photograph than other animals. Add the trees in full blossom and the smell of fresh grass and you are in for a memory that you will not forget anytime soon.
