Ring Neck Pheasants have to be one of the prettiest birds out there.

I caught the first bird just pecking around for food.

The second pair were doing some sort of mano y mano thing.

I like 'em; nice detail. But next time would you ask them to hold their feet still while you take the picture???

smac,

Very nice pics, good sharp focus on the birds. Did you use your Panasonic tele on these?

Thanks,
Yes. I bought a Sunpak Platinum Plus Monopod to attach to the camera bracket that came with the teleconverter lens. It allows me to put the camera strap around my neck and then len the camera out by placing the monopod against either my belt or stomach. It's really helps with the stabilization and still allows mobility.

What saturation setting you use normally? I have noticed that all of your photos are very colorful. And you get very colorful subjects too. I half believe that even a B&W picture from youn will be as colorful.:G

Very nice indeed

I guess the saturation was normal; using 'high' would have caused oversaturation I think.
