Sometimes being a reporter is a lot of fun – like this morning, when I covered a pheasant release by N.H. Fish & Game. I took the above picture with my phone while holding a light pole for Geoff Forester – it provided a 1/10,000th-second flash so he could capture the movement of the birds’ wings. Check tomorrow’s Monitor to see his photos – should be good.
The downside of the story is that the birds are not long for this world. They are released in order to be shot by hunters, and they won’t survive New Hampshire’s winter even if they evade the shotguns.
