Nice !!! ... it's always fun to photograph the males ... for more photo opportunities "when" the sun comes back out drive down LaFrambois Road early in the mornings and often you'll find Pheasants in the fields there ... at least they use to be easy to find, I haven't tried in a couple of years ... Pheasant release days use to be saturdays and wednesdays (according to WDFW) a few years ago so I would always try thursday and sunday mornings ... (too much hunter folks on saturday and wednesday) ...

have fun,
Lyn
