Archibald Thorburn wrote that: "Looking at things with the eye of the ordinary lover of nature, one can only attempt to represent with brush and pencil the wonderful beauty of the living creatures around us. The chief essential is to acquire the faculty of observing and noting down the many subtle differences in pose and little tricks of habit in different species, and this knowledge can only be obtained by patient watching."

Pheasants are birds that can be found alone or in small flocks. Typically, a mother hen and her brood will stay together until early autumn. While pheasants are able to fly fast for short distances, they prefer to run. If startled however, they will burst to the sky in a "flush."  Their flight speed is 38 to 48 mph when cruising but when chased they can fly up to 60 mph.

The print is hand numbered and accompanied by a certificate signed by the Master Printer and bearing a matching number to the print.
