It was the month of May when I was walking in a Wisconsin field and noticed a male pheasant standing near a female pheasant that was partially hidden in the grass. I walked closer to the pair and expected the male to fly away- he didn’t. He started vigorously flapping his wings. I already had a shutter speed of 1/3200 set, so I was able to freeze the movement of the wings.
