Life through the Lens (14 February 2021)

When my eyesight was still good, I was a bit of an amateur photographer. This is one of mine.

My neighbour christened this guy Bruno. Where I am, they breed pheasants in order to shoot them (I believe they call it sport). I therefore welcome escapees, and Bruno very sensibly spent the winter living in my front garden. Isn’t he beautiful?

  1. La chasse was very popular in Northern France. So much so that they were a danger to me and the dogs when we were out walking. Dauphy did once fetch us a ‘stolen’ pheasant which made a very nice Sunday lunch!


    1. Yes we would see people openly carrying shotguns, so I always figured the whole hunting thing was as big there. I think we even met a pack of dogs once by one of the chateaux down in the Loire. Think it was Cheverny. Nasty buggers.

  2. Few dogs large or small I’ve found difficult to like. Especially fond of large dogs . A bad person, I suppose, I’ve in the past hunted. Truly evil, I’m not even in a recovery group. This. Mr B, is a great pic. I lament the loss of the ring-necked pheasant in the northern US Midwest. Gents, huntsmen (we call’m ‘hunters’ here) are not all bad people (and not always men, whatever that means). Been tending fences. seen a hunter and his Dauphy out working a field; D put up a brace of nice birds, within range, clear shot, and watched both hunters simply admire. Different kind of hunting, I suppose. Thanks for the lovely ride back many (many) years and as always prompt to re-assessment.
