Expect the unexpected

Murphy's Law (one of them) states that when you don't have your camera handy, something interesting will happen. Well, I lent mine to a friend overnight, and would you know - something did! :)

This morning, as my son left for school, there was a real-live pheasant outside. Young, not fully coloured, but with all the beautiful long feathers that a pheasant could have. It was pecking around in the parking area, trying to find breakfast, so I went out with a cup of bird seed to give it another option.

I don't know where it is now, but there usually aren't pheasants in the area. I'll make sure I keep an eye out for it from now on! And hope no-one decides it deserves to be cooked...
