Pheasant in Spring Meadow

I love the aesthetic of an orchard with trees in flower and fruit. I have planted the turf below my trees with bulbs and wildflowers so that its season begins at the turn of the year with a flowering meadow that continues through the spring. Favourites among the flowers are the crocuses, but birds like them too and often eat the flowers before I can appreciate their beauty. Meeting a handsome pheasant who had dined well, I decided that rather than be furious I should see this as an opportunity, and so I created this collage in celebration of his beauty as well as the meadow’s.
