    Pigeons by the river

    A couple of pigeon shots from last weekend.

    Ruffled feathers (it was quite windy)

    Who's a pretty boy then?

    They may be considered by some to be little more than flying rats, but I love the irridescent colours.

    C&C welcome

    I'm with you Dave, I like the pigeons. The colours are so nice and they make the most soothing sounds. If only they could be bathroom trained.

    #1 is beautiful, the colours and expression and you've captured the irridescence perfectly. Same with #2 but #1 is my favourite. Very nice!!! and NO Halos Wish I could do that.

    You are talking to someone whose favourite bird is the blackbird. Very good colours, Dave, especially in #1. I feel with #2 he needs a bit more space to the left to 'look into'.

    Very good. You did a great job capturing the irridescence.

    Or better yet, to not breed so much!
