Thanks Levina.

I know they are not at all exotic, i mean they are just pigeons...but I find them so photogenic and really enjoy photographing them.

Well it sure looks prettier than our feral or city pigeons, Graham, but I was more referring to the shot itself. Colours are lovely and there's wonderful clarity. The low angle is also great.

Levina, that your comment was referring to the shot itself has really made my day.

I have been working on composition and getting down low of late and it was worth laying in the wet grass to get this one. I am sure I was getting some strange looks from other people in the park though!

This morning I could not blame the neighborhood cats for running all the song birds away from the bird feeders. Here is the guilty party.

Splendid! The colour is amazing!
Our pidgeons are quit dull in comparison.
