Wild female common pheasant that I was lucky to come across at relatively close quarters in a field. I don't know who was more surprised!
The males are of course a lot more colourful than the females but that doesn't mean this is not a pretty lady. - London, UK
The Common Pheasant is one of the world's most hunted birds; it has been introduced for that purpose to many regions, and is also common on game farms where it is commercially bred.
