The Serpent and the Pheasant.

I was crossing a walker's bridge at Toyano Lagoon, Niigata,  on April 10 and saw a Japanese Green Pheasant going mad stomping around in the dead reeds. I was looking into the sun, took a few shots and walked on without realising why it was so frantic. Saw the reason when I got home and downloaded the photos.  Some great nature observer I am, heah?
