The Hare and the Pheasant(s)

Yesterday, we were watching the brown hare feeding in the bird mix plants along the side of the arable field,


when it ran along the edge of the field and had a stand-off with this hen pheasant.

They were about 5 feet apart!


I did not notice until I uploaded this photo that the hen had a chick with it – and there may be more than one about.
