Best Pheasant Shot Ever

It was a great couple days at Mayberry. Fishing was good and I was getting some pretty good photos as Lola and I walked around the property.

Working some thick cover in a location where we often find pheasant, Lola was red hot. I could hardly keep up with her. She ran out in front to about 100 yards and turned to work here way back, nose to the ground – going in and out of sight in the cover. The rooster rose quickly from about 50 yards in front of me and passed me at about 30 yards. I swung the Nikon and snapped a shot. What were the chances?

To fully appreciate, click on the photo to enlarge it.

It was a direct hit with good light and he was cackling all the way.
