The Mikado Pheasant: A Majestic Bird with Luxurious Feathers

The Mikado Pheasant: A Majestic Bird with Luxurious Feathers

“The Mikado Pheasant is also known as an Emperor Pheasant; the word ‘mikado’ mean ‘emperor’. And the bird is truly regal. I found this pheasant more ‘enchanting’ than the Swinhoe’s which many photographers wait patiently to image. Above shows the royal family.

“Note that I took two images in succession, one foсᴜѕed on male (above) and the other on the female (below) and merged them to allow both birds to be ѕһагр in the image.

“The images shared here were taken on a wet and misty morning, the ideal conditions for the Mikado Pheasant. I ignored lens dаmаɡe in my exсіtemeпt to view these magnificent birds. I will not describe the birds and let the images speak for themselves, but I will say that the female’s plumage was as mesmerizing as the male’s.”
