info

The photos presented here were taken in quite a peculiar way. Our guide, Tu, informed us that if we wanted to see this skittish bird we had to be between 2 and 6 pm on an asphalt road cutting a forest. It sounded quite strange, but we decided to go there. When we were on the site we saw small backpack hides placed on the right and left side of the road. Along with ours, there were 8 of them. I had never photographed this way, sitting in a tent where every now and then, a meter from us, there was a car passing by. It occurred that pheasants move towards lower parts of mountain slopes for the night, where there is a little bit warmer. After three hours of waiting the first pheasant female occurred, but only for short, as it was scared by a cyclist passing by. After a while two females appeared and we had several minutes to take some pictures. This time they were scared by a car. Finally a male appeared. It was very cautious and moved out from the thicket slowly, checking out the surroundings. Whistling shutters of 8 cameras didn’t bother him at all. In this quite an odd scenery the pictures presented here were taken.
