WILDLIFE PHOTOGRAPHY — The one-in-a-million pheasant photo by Coeur d'Alene wildlife photographer Tim Christi sparked some pleasant memories after the S-R published it in the Outdoors section.
I received this letter last week:
"My late husband used to rise earlyl in the morning to surveyhis world before beginning his day. He often encountered a pheasant whom we nicknamed The President.
"My husband and the bird would engage each in his own language regarding who actually belonged on this sunny corn-producing hillside by the river. More often than not, they shared a joy of a new day and the joy of being part of it.
"The President shared his land for several seasons. We knew him by a slightly crippled gait as he nibbled on young corn blades and pecked at the pumpkins.
"We will enjoy the memory via your magnificent picture."
