This posse of posing pigeons perched precariously on a precious place, was captured sometime ago, as I was being wheeled through the streets of Rochester. Pigeons are about the only feathered friends that I do manage to capture, due to tow reasons (a) the little blighters not staying still long enough (b) me not staying still enough to capture them. Any tips gratefully received. Have a great day to you all.

One of my favourite birds ...... NOT (leave your new cabbage plants uncovered for two minutes and ..... no cabbage plants!!) Nicely captured though, Nathan, and i like Lillian's advice Grin.

Love the composition Nathan. Pigeons never do what you expect them to do, but I do find them worthy of the odd photo!
