Ring-necked Pheasant. Winter,1990. Cope, Colorado. My father and brother used to go to the little town of Cope Colorado for the pheasant hunt every year. I was a terrible shot and could never bag a bird.
Male pheasants fight for feeding grounds and females. Wildlife photographer Richard Peters who caught the feisty pair on camera on farm land in Hertfordshire said: I couldn't believe how vicious they were. Picture: Richard Peters / Rex Features
