    Was out and about near Swinton Park in North Yorkshire at the weekend, when we spotted this chap surveying his estate from upon high,he just sat there waiting for his Photo to be taken. The thing is, the camera was on the back seat, my wife grabbed the camera bag, i pulled the camera out, switched on and started pressing the shutter button, a little message popped up in the EVF, No SD Card:mad::mad::mad:. Another panic and what seemed ages trying to find the card in the bag. We eventually found it and inserted it in to the G6 and started allover again. This Chap just stood patiently waiting and then after i'd got a few photo's calmly walked away.

    All taken with a panasonic G6 and a Lumix 14-140mm Zoom lens

    Great shots. Those guys are so colorful, unlike any pheasants I've seen on our side of the pond.
