Cool timing.

I don't why people call these 'rats with wings' ... the common Pigeon is a very pretty bird ... bright orange eyes, and iridescent shades of greens and purples.

Awesome moment captured Iggy. Well done.

Not only very colourful, but quite tasty also.

Thanks, MA. I expect it has more to do with they fact that they are ever present in large groups in cities looking for food.

Thanks, Runmonty.

Thanks, JAS.

Thanks, HBG. I've never had the occasion to taste one. I think I'll keep it that way.

The subdued expression on the woman is also interesting. Good catch!

Thanks, Marko. It's one of the reasons this particular shot simply did it for me. She is so engrossed in feeding that pigeon she almost looks mesmerized.

Yes, very much like this shot! There's something fascinating about pigeons, especially when they congregate.

Nice to see some more of your street stuff Iggy, I've been busy recently but have been keeping an eye on flickr.

Very cool. You wouldn't see me doing it..birds freak me out a little (when they are in my hand). Nice timing!

Thanks, Richard. The city is starting to thaw and so is my brain :)

I must agree with everyone else a greatly timed capture and such wonderful colours on the pigeon.

Thanks, A.L. It was tricky to time it right and I am quite happy with the result.
