Bird Photography is just Soooo Easy!

Bird photography is easy? Well, it can be with a good viewing point and an obliging pheasant. A couple of years ago we replaced our sitting room window and arranged for the new one to be as panoramic as possible.

This provides a perfect viewing point for the view, the garden and the bird feeders. This is where we did our bird count from.
Enter the model, stage left

This boy is such a poser!
He is very tame and will let me walk past him less than three feet away.
It almost looks as if he is trying to give me a hint!

Probably not, he would be a tough old bird and he can look after himself. He has been around all winter visiting gardens on a daily basis. There is not much fear of him getting caught as he has chased our own cats off when they got the wrong ideas.

Easy indeed in such a lovely location .. helps when they come to you doesnt it ? Would find it hard to tear myself away from such a view as presumably does the pheasant .. great to have them as visitors.

He is, indeed, a grand bird, and does look as if he knows it, too. Great pics! :-))

Thanks for the comments on the blog and the individual pictures. It certainly helps to have a warm, private bird hide, the windows don't even have to be that clean to take photos!!

What a character Bulbaholic !! Like Littlewren our regular pheasant visitor hot-foots it across the lawn and into the undergrowth if we approach ! Maybe in time...
Love your views across open fields...just perfect !
