Fezzie's back by jamibann

Fezzie's back

I took this shot of Fezzie in our garden last week, but he's had to wait for his moment of glory on 365, as I've had other more interesting photos to post of late and yesterday he was definitely eclipsed by my Mountain Hare! Ha ha ... patience is a virtue, Fezzie!
Saw my first Pheasant in Shetland in November and then again last month. Wondering if someone has brought some in - it was strange seeing them here.

Lovely photo.....so close to get all the wonderful details and colours are fantastic. We have had a few visits from one of his distant cousins recently but I didn't manage any great photos!

Handsome chap.

Such a beauty...

Yay, Fezzie! So handsome!

Everything comes to he who waits. Glad he has finally got his moment of fame.

What a handsome bird! Worth the wait to see him.

He's a handsome chap... we've got black pheasants around us.
January 13th, 2021  
He's a very handsome fellow.
January 13th, 2021  
Superb detail. What a beauty!

Great catch - better shot with a camera than a shotgun though I confess I have one in my freezer courtesy of our neighbour!
January 13th, 2021  
Great capture
January 13th, 2021  
He's certainly a fashionable color plate! Good shot!
January 13th, 2021  
oh great to see him!
January 13th, 2021  
Glad he got his moment at last. Well worth it Fezzie
January 13th, 2021  
Cool dude.
January 13th, 2021  
Lovely capture, fav
January 13th, 2021  
So cool -- as if this was in a book of birds to represent a 'classic'!
January 13th, 2021  
What a very handsome fella!
January 13th, 2021  
That’s an amazing capture... aren’t they a beautiful bird & can be quite tame. Ours got chased away by Connie this morning but sure she will be back!

Fezzie is doing his best to win the photo contest.
January 13th, 2021  
Beautiful colors and patterns.
January 14th, 2021  
Ooooh I have never seen a pheasant! Glorious colour.
January 14th, 2021  
What a beautiful pheasant - such nice focusing on all his markings
January 14th, 2021  
@sarah19 You will. Ours is a bit stupid (or a bit blind ...) I think. I can creep up on him reasonably easily if I spot him out the back.

@darylo They are beautiful beasts, but fairly common here. Although not always in your garden!
January 14th, 2021  
What a great capture of this beautiful bird
January 14th, 2021  
@jamibann is it bad that I have always dreamed of cooking one? Never seen or eaten one.
January 15th, 2021  
@darylo He he ... not a bit of it! John is always nagging me to cook pheasant. I'm not a fan, so I put it off! Usually I tell him that there's none at the butcher's shop! However, sometimes he checks himself, so I get rumbled! I am currently waiting for the butcher to text me when he has a couple in the shop. So, I'm sure I'll be cooking a couple some time soon, whilst they're in season. I always do them in a casserole with wine and veggies. 'Always', ... that is, when I do cook them, which is about once a year!

@jamibann oh that's funny. Haha that John. I am tired of the obligatory turkey meal here at Thanksgiving and every year, I say "I'd prefer to cook pheasant or duck." I have cooked neither. I don't even think pheasant is available around here.

I had the most amazing duck dish in Paris while visiting a friend of our family at her home in 1985. Her mother somehow took slices of duck to surround a whole peach and then candied (hard surface) so it was a ball of duck but when you cracked through the hard glaze, there was succulent duck and a perfect peach.

Send me a pic of your pheasant dish when you do make it!
