Phasianus colchicus


I’ve been away. I am back. This fellow greeted me upon my return home.

Wow! I just read a great poem about the pheasant--you probably know of it already...

He's so beautiful!

Isn't he grand! He hasn't been crowing at all this morning and he hasn't shown up for the cracked corn. Worry sets in...

Crimsoncrow,

Welcome back! Hope you had a safe, fun, and relaxing trip. We have mobs o' cats to greet us when we return to the farm(house). We have a long sidewalk they use as a runway for rolling, greeting, etc. It's a daily cat pageant.

I refer to the ritual as their "greetathon."

Cool photo.

Thanks, Lee.

I know just what you mean about the "greet-a-thon." I only ever had one cat at a time but they each loved to roll and twist in the driveway or on the sidewalk as I returned form work or a day out...
