A photographer in Linfen, Shanxi province, recently spent three days waiting to capturing golden pheasants in the act of seeking mates.

In the video, two male golden pheasants used all their strength to show off their muscles and feathers to attract a female.

The birds seemed to enjoy the spring scenery and have become part of the natural landscape in the early spring.
