Proudly Posing Perched Pigeon

By NDODS    
Good Day to you all at ePz

The dreaded PTSD kept me awake all night, however I've just been given a large strong coffee so I should be right as rain in a while.

Thank you for all taking the time out to view, comment and vote on my upload yesterday. A further mention going to: Msquared (Mal), Dwaller (David) and Pentaxpatty (Patricia) for your User Awards.

Todays uploads were captured out of my room window yesterday during a brief break in the weather. I've always been a lover of Wood Pigeon, and IMHO they are quite beautiful in their own right and certainly worth photographing.

I hope that you have a great day, for me who knows depending on the weather one may venture out or sit in and do some painting.

Regards NathanGrinGrinGrin

Is it a perfectly positioned Pouter or a plain old pretty pigeon ??

Lovely images of this delightful feathered one Nathan.

First it seems to be taking it as a joke (V1), but then poses for you taking it seriously. A lovely set, Nathan. It's beautiful, indeed.

You've done wood pigeons proud with this lovely set of images.
They do have beautiful colouring and I suppose we underrate some more common birds
until we're forced to stop and look at them closely.

A great set of images Nathan, I think everyone in the UK has Wood Pigeons coming to their gardens at some time but not some many of us think to take pictures of them, in future I will have a go at getting a few shots.

How many grains you paid him to stay so beautiful in all positions? (I think he is a professional model,he is doing great in front of the camera!) To tell you it is a very successful set, is banal (all your photos are successful!), but that is the truth!

I've never uploaded any of my wood pigeon shots because they are just that, a wood pigeon, even though they are colourful birds, as you have shown.

These are beautiful images of beautiful birds Nathan. The colours seem much more vivid than the Scottish ones; perhaps it's the lack of light up here or the Scottish diet. I am so glad you like wood pigeons. We have quite a collection of them visiting our garden as we feed them regularly. But we have one very special bird 'Woody' who perches on the washing line then flies down and takes food from our hands. They really are a delight as are all garden birds.
