Very nicely done. Stacked teleconverters----tell me more. Also, handheld? or tripod?

A beautiful bird. We do not have them here.

Thanks to everyone for the nice comments. I used an olympus C-180 with a 52 -55 step ring glued to the front and an olympus B-300 (Old version of Tcon 17). I get dark corners unless I use the EZ modes but not real bad. I seen the pheasant while driving so I got out of the car and used the car door to steady the camera. Here is the original, notice the dark edges. Thanks to all.

A very pleasant pheasant (urk...)

Interesting use of lenses, too, might give it a try.

That is a great shots and you wonder with the colours on that bird how he is supposed to fit into nature to hide from predators (or photographers!!!) :-)

It's surprising to me but the colors work, they are masters at hiding. My second shot was just a couple seconds later as he was disappearing, I just couldn't spot him for a third shot.
