Awesome shot was this a captive bird or a wild bird, either way I'm impressed you got close enough to get this at a 105 mm.

A bit of both. We were at the Wildfowl & Wetlands Trust (google?) at Washington, in NE of UK . They have wild birds flying in but also a captive breeding programme. This wild trespasser was used to humans in the reserve and taking food from the "residents", so was tempted to come a little closer than usual with a scattering of seed.

Isn't he - but is the female pheasant in  "Secure but not safe..." (the following dA submission) even more subtly beautiful  :?
