Round 19-E

My 103th entry ~
Mijn 103e bijdrage

Hello and good morning, -afternoon, -evening, dear people who all participate is this wonderful photomeme, which is a joy to me, week after week, after week. I’m always curious to what you come up with!

The challenging letter of this week is the and I’ve chosen for the word Extravagant

This entitlement suits many people and things but also in the world of animals. Ofcourse, it is a matter of taste but to me the Pheasant is one of those on which such a title can be put. The regular kind of Pheasants is beautiful but the Silver-Pheasant and the Golden Pheasant are much more Extravagant beautiful. Since last saturday I now can say:  “I have seen all three of them before my own eyes”…

I’ll show you the three versions and I am curious to know which one do you like most?

Have a nice ABC-Wednesday-day / – week

De Goud-Fazant / The Golden Pheasantaquazoo-060816-1
De Zilver-Fazant / The Silver Pheasant

Gewone Fazant / Normal Pheasant

Hallo en goede-morgen / – middag / – avond beste deelnemers in deze mooi foto-uitdaging, waar ik week na week iedere keer weer veel plezier beleef. Ben altijd heel benieuwd naar waar jullie mee komen.

De uitdagende letter van deze week is de letter E en ik koos voor het woord Extravagant

Deze betiteling is op veel mensen en zaken van toepassing maar toch ook op de dierenwereld.  Eén van de meest extravagante dieren vind ik toch wel de fazant….   Het is natuurlijk een kwestie van smaak maar de reguliere fazant is gewoon een mooie vogel. De Zilver-Fazant en de Goud-Fazant daarentegen vind ik veel Extravaganter. Sinds afgelopen zaterdag kan ik zeggen: “Ik heb ze alle drie met eigen ogen gezien”.

Ik plaats de 3 versies hier, ben benieuwd welke jij het mooist vindt….

Wens je een fijne ABC-Wednesday-dag / – week.

    They are beautiful birds and I had one in my backyard a few years ago! When I was a child, one flew into our plate glass living room window so my Dad cleaned it up and we had it for dinner! They are delicious along with their beauty!!!

      Yes they are….
      oops… poor bird…
      I wouldn’t know that, I think I’ve never eaten one

    They are all Elegant and quite beautiful.
    The gold crown on the first one has captured me.
    I don’t think I have ever seen a pheasant like the middle one.

    1. Melody schreef:

      Indeed they are Photowannabe…. as for the first, My first time was last saturday, the middle one I’ve seen for the first time just soms months ago

    Very beautiful birds.

    1. Melody schreef:

      Nice to read that we agree Rajesh, I like them too

  4. Pheasants certainly fit the picture of extravagant. I have a red Nikon too, but mine is only a D3300. I love it!

    1. Melody schreef:

      Thats what I thought when I was searching my mind for a suitable entry for E.
      Nice to see we agree on this ;-)

      I had a 3300 to… I wanted to step it up… so after saving every coin in my wallet
      for a long time…and getting a good offer on my 3300,
      I was able to purchase one last june.

      This one makes better photo’s. much more pixels and much more stability (which I so much needed because of my shaking hands)

      This one need much more power though, so thanks to Ebay I have extra batteries
      quit cheap. (ofcourse original ones) . I am very pleased with this camera, it suits very well for what I ask from it.

      I totaly agree with you…. I was (still am) very surprised to see one for the first time
      last saturday.

    Extravagant indeed! Breathtakingly beautiful!! Loved them all:)

    1. Melody schreef:

      Thank you Amit, nice to see we agree.
      I like them a lot too.

    The common pheasant is the one I regularly see here in the polder.

    The other two are very exquisite. I have never seen the silver pheasant.

    Thanks for sharing them.

    1. Melody schreef:

      Ha Wil, fijn dat je het gevonden hebt!!

      Het zijn inderdaad heel bijzondere vogel-exemplaren!

      graag gedaan natuurlijk

    What beautiful avian photography ! Gorgeous birds!

    Wishing you a happy week ~ ^_^

  9. Melody schreef:

    Thank you Carol & Zoe, I love birds so these ones also.

    Wishing you the same, thank you, I’ll give it my best ;-) ;-)

    The last one is a familiar sight here. I like the first one for its bold colouring and the white one amuses me because it is so white that it almost looks as though it could have had white paint spilt on it.

    1. Melody schreef:

      Here too Joy…

      Yes I understand what you mean… the white one is so intens white that it almost
      hurts the eyes to look at it, especcialy when it catches the sunbeams

    De gewone fazant zie ik toch het liefst, want die loopt hier vrij rond. En als Rosa
    aangelijnd is, kan de fazant het nog navertellen ook (-: De andere dieren hebben
    wel schitterende kleuren. Ze doen niet onder voor een pauw.
    Dikke knuffel

    1. Melody schreef:

      Daar heb je wel een punt… maar in een kinderboerderij vrij rondlopen, vrij van
      dreiging van gevaar is ook niet zo erg toch

    Wow! Exotic birds!
    I like the colorful plumage.
    Happy ABCW!

    1. Melody schreef:

      I think they are indeed…. me too Indrani

      Thank you, wishing you the same

    De gewone zie ik gelukkig vrij regelmatig in de parken hier in de omgeving maar de goud fazant lijkt me toch de állermooiste!

    1. Rietepietz schreef:

      Omdat hij zo bijzonder is heb ik hem blijkbaar met een D geschreven;-) oeps…foutje!

      1. Melody schreef:

        oeps ;-) … Ik zal t wijzigen hoor…

        1. Rietepietz schreef:

          Dankjewelx

          1. Melody schreef:

            U is wellekome lieve dame, van harte!

    2. Melody schreef:

      Ik ben het helemaal met je eens….

  14. Vicki schreef:

    They are all beautiful but I like the first one the most.

    1. Melody schreef:

      I agree Vicky, I like the golden one the most too

  15. Ann schreef:

    Delightful and beautiful birds, it’s been only a few times I’ve had pheasant.

    1. Melody schreef:

      I agree that they are beautiful …. on the other matter I can’t really say because I can’t remember ever having eaten one

  16. Diane schreef:

    I regularly buy dressed pheasant when they are in season, they are
    quite delicious.
    The first one looks like the most handsome.

    1. Melody schreef:

      Aha okay…. like I answered others already before you… I can’t remember ever having eaten one so I really couldn’t say how they taste

      On that we agree :-)

  17. Anita schreef:

    God’s creations are so beautiful! Love them all :)
    To describe them, extravagant is a great word!

    1. Melody schreef:

      Nice to read we agree on this Anita.
