One of the handsome golden pheasants made an appearance when we visited Maple Glen Garden on 06 October but not as close as previously. I still wanted to post the shots though. He was more interested in keeping close to a near female than being near us. For a closer view, see The Golden Boy.
These are extreme crops from a couple of photos I took.
These birds are fortunate to be able to roam free around the extensive gardens.
Maple Glen Garden, Glenham, Southland, New Zealand.
