Freaked Pheasant

While we were driving near Rowe Sanctuary, Lanette noticed a pair of pheasants milling around in a field. I backed the car up and we got out to take some pictures. This freaked the birds out in a heartbeat, and they took off in different directions -- one running (we think -- it kinda just disappeared), one flying. The flying bird flew over our road and into the cow-filled field on the other side. Not a bad strategy, if I say so myself! I switched to the mode 2 panning on the 70-200 and snapped this shot as the bird flew past. Click to enlarge.
