This is an amazingly beautiful bird we had the opportunity to photograph at close range in Taiwan.  I have plenty of shots where I got the whole tail in but I liked this one a lot as I captured the iridescence well.

What a handsome pheasant, Nate. And I'm with you on the iridescence – just beautiful.

The colors are just amazing. Great shot of a bird that I have never seen posted before, Nate.

Outstanding color and wonderful sharpness. Yes, it would be better if the tail were totally included, but oh my those colors!!!

Very striking pheasant and you caught the markings, colours and iridescence superbly, Nate!
