Sky Rat !!
Firstly many thanks to : Kathrynlouise, CarolG and Sue_R for their UA's on the previous image & all else for your votes, comments and clicks....Always welcomed and appreciated.
Tonight a Pigeon taken in the garden on Saturday, unfortunately that's all I can offer Lol
All the best
Love the title, Dean . A superb capture. Carol
That title made me smile,
They're clever little devils, they always find a way to get to our feeders.
Nicely frozen Dean.... if this is all you have to offer what chance is there for the rest of us mere mortals
I love the Wood Pigeons, they are so photogenic and full of personality...............
Well seen and captured.............

I do agree.
Whatever else Dean, they are one of nature's born survivors
Super capture, Dean.
But I have issue with your title.
Feral pigeons are referred to as flying rats, as they
carry many diseases harmful to humans. The good old
"woody" may be a pain in the neck to the farming community
but a flying rat he is not.
Let's not have any contempt for the lowly pidgeon . He is a beauty and so is your image. No contempt for sea gulls either. Very smart as they are first to investigate when one tosses french fries at the beach. Crows are second in that regard. TG
A superb in-flight capture Dean - which also defines the beautiful feather tones. John
Super capture Dean - I like pigeons - lovely colour birds.
That title caused a stir mate, great shot though.

Great offering love the picture
People need to do their research on Feral Pigeons as well as Wood Pigeons, they do not carry "diseases" harmful to humans.... They can transmit one main disease and that is only if you are a bit lacking when it comes to Personal Hygiene and common sense!
Lovely picture of a beautiful bird though
May be a common place subject Dean but its surely not a common place capture. Beautifully timed.
Great capture Dean, and what timing!
Excellent in light photo Dean, have to post what you get
Excellent timing in this shot........Sandy
Tremendous Image - Really Like it.
This is outstanding dean.
Lovely Pigeon !! Well taken in flight shot!
I think to call a Wood Pigeon a Sky Rat is a little unfair! Apart from that minor gripe, the image is a stunner!
Excellent on flight capture Dean, good one
Froze the movement well. Bravo.
A terrific landing shot Dean, you've timed this one to perfection
