Bright & Beautiful

This gorgeous creature lives in my Dad's wood (yes he has a wood in his back garden). He just turned up one day from goodness knows where and decided he liked it that much he would call it home.

I've put the second picture up so you can see he is real and does actually move. The colours that you see are his real colours, I promise that other than to crop the pictures I have not edited them in any way.

EDITED TO ADD : IT IS A MALE GOLDEN PHEASANT ALSO KNOWN AS A CHINESE PHEASANT THEY ARE NATIVE TO CHINA.
