OK... something that's not a pigeon or a sea gull (nice one Stupot) :-)
I dug out this one I took back in July - Its a little snail I found 'wandering' around the old patio table in the back garden.

He (or she?) was only about an inch long. I think I overdid the 'fill-in' flash a tad though...

Sorry, I don't have any pigeons. But I really don't want to suck, so you'll have to settle for this little fella taken at Manly Dam in the Northern suburbs of Sydney. :)

Not quite, but the flash was only about 6 inches away from him/her (it?) and if they have eyes(?) it must have had a bit of a shock. If someone fired it that close to me I'd jump :-)

Thank you:) I like your snail. I searched my hard drive for something thats not a bird in a town setting... But unfortunately Portsmouth doesn't have quite the biodiversity I'd hoped. A seagull had to do:)

:lol: :lol: Judging from the posts to date seems biodiversity is an all too common problem within our urban playgrounds.

There are lots of foxes in London, but they rarely stay in sight long enough to get the telephoto lens out.
But they do make sure that the whole neighbour hood hears them mating in the middle of the night! :evil:

I saw tons of squirrels and foxes on the campus grounds when I lived in Richmond. Don't think I heard them mating though! I heard plenty enough of that within the dorms... :evil:
